Cognition and Representation: A Way To Pursue the American Dream?
Eisner, Elliot W.
Phi Delta Kappan, v78 n5 p348-53 Jan 1997
Our minds are shaped by youthful learning opportunities. Different forms of cultural representation (art, poetry, or mathematics) influence the processes and products of thinking, develop different cognitive skills, influence perceptions, can be combined to provide enriching experiences, and call on different skills and forms of thinking. Implications for schooling's process, content, equity, and culture are discussed. (MLH)
