The Importance of Prior Knowledge.
Cleary, Linda Miller
Reading, v23 n1 p28-31 Apr 1989
Recounts a college English teacher's experience of reading and rereading Noam Chomsky, building up a greater store of prior knowledge. Argues that Frank Smith provides a theory for the importance of prior knowledge and Chomsky's work provided a personal example with which to interpret and integrate that theory. (RS)
