A Critique of Schema Theory in Reading and a Dual Coding Alternative (Commentary).
Sadoski, Mark; And Others
Reading Research Quarterly, v26 n4 p463-84 1991
Evaluates schema theory and presents dual coding theory as a theoretical alternative. Argues that schema theory is encumbered by lack of a consistent definition, its roots in idealist epistemology, and mixed empirical support. Argues that results of many empirical studies used to demonstrate the existence of schemata are more consistently explained by dual coding theory. (SR)
