Suitable for graduate-level courses in learning and educational psychology, this edition covers new developments in the teaching and learning of cognitive processes. The book links sub-disciplines of cognitive psychology - encompassing reading, writing, maths, science and teaching - to form a comprehensive and integrated model of expertise. This model provides a theoretical foundation for the overall teaching and learning process, and includes implications for classroom instruction.For example, when Scardamalia, Bereiter, and Goel- man (1982) gave fourth- and sixth-grade children a writing ... In college, persons with low verbal SAT scores produce essays with fewer ideas than do persons with average verbal SAT ... If this argument is correct, then cuing young children to continue should cause them to write more and should also lead to greater cohesiveness of what is written.
