National Reading Conference Yearbook, v47 p508-16 1998
Uses concept maps to reveal important changes in the knowledge base of preservice teachers. Finds that preservice teachers in a school-based, three-course "literacy block" constructed richer, more professional, and more complete concept maps (relating more literacy teaching and subject-matter ideas together with logically appropriate connectors) than the university-based group with fewer hours in the elementary school.
