Problematizing Dewey's Views of Problem Solving: A Reply to Hiebert et al.
Prawat, Richard S.
Educational Researcher, v26 n2 p19-21 Mar 1997
Expresses concerns about the way Hiebert et al. (1996) characterized Dewey's approach to thinking and problem solving. It argues that Hiebert et al.'s interpretation of Dewey downplays the crucial role of ideas in the problem-solving process while simultaneously elevating "action, over doing" as the key element in promoting greater understanding in students.
