What More Needs Saying about Imagination?
Spencer, Margaret Meek
Reading Teacher, v57 n1 p105-11 Sep 2003
Contends that for children learning to read, imagination is not something separate or extra that their teachers add to their learning. Notes that how hard children work to make sense of the world is evinced in their play and in research analyses of it. Explains that young imaginations often move into a mental space they recognize from what they read. (PM)
