Collaboration through writing and reading : exploring possibilities( Book )

2 editions published in 1989 in English and held by 447 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This book, a series of essays developed at a working conference on the integration of reading and writing, surveys the historical, cultural, situational and social forces that keep the teaching of writing separate, skew the curriculum to favor reading over writing, and discourage development of pedagogies that integrate the language arts; examines the cognitive processes and strategies writers and readers use outside of school to develop and express their ideas; and discusses the challenge teachers face--to help students develop skills for reading and writing without isolating those skills from meaningful tasks and letting students forget the reasons for these activities. The book contains the following chapters: Chapter 1, "On Collaboration" (Anne Haas Dyson); Chapter 2, Introduction (James Moffett) and "a Sisyphean Task: Historical Perspectives on Writing and Reading Instruction" (Geraldine Joncich Clifford); Chapter 3, Introduction (Guadalupe Valdes) and "Writing and Reading in the Community" (Robert Gundlach and others); Chapter 4, Introduction (Sandra Murphy) and "The Problem-Solving Processes of Writers and Readers" (Ann S. Rosebery and others); Chapter 5, Introduction (Wallace Chafe) and "Writing and Reading Working Together" (Robert J. Tierney and others); Chapter 6, Introduction (Mary K. Healy) and "Writing-and-Reading in the Classroom" (James Britton); and Chapter 7, "The Writing-Reading Connection: Taking Off the Handcuffs" (Art Peterson). (Ms)

The computer as a tool for learning through reflection by Allan Collins( Book )

4 editions published in 1986 in English and held by 72 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

With a computational medium it becomes possible, and often easy, to capture directly the processes by which a novice or an expert carries out a complex task. Properly abstracted and structured, this process trace or audit trail can become a useful object of study for students who are trying to learn how to improve their performance on a task. By comparing the details and structure of their own performance with that of more expert performers, they can discover elements that need improving. In a sense, the experts audit trail provides an accessible example of the situated use of general reasoning strategies. Likewise, an audit trail of their own performance provides an object of study from which students can hone important self-monitoring and other metacognitive strategies.

Cognitive apprenticeship : teaching the craft of reading, writing, and mathtematics by Allan Collins( Book )

4 editions published between 1987 and 1989 in English and held by 70 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Even today, many complex and important skills, such as those required for language use and social interaction, are learned informally through apprenticeshiplike methods -- i.e., methods involving not didactic teaching, but observation, coaching, and successive approximation while carrying out a variety of tasks and activities. The differences between formal schooling and apprenticeship methods are many, but for our purposes, one is most important. Perhaps as a by-product of the specialization of learning in schools, skills and knowledge taught in schools have become abstracted from their uses in the world. In apprenticeship learning, on the other hand, target skills are not only continually in use by skilled practitioners, but are instrumental to the accomplishment of meaningful tasks. Said differently, apprenticeship embeds the learning of skills and knowledge in the social and functional context of their use. This difference is not academic, but has serious implications for the nature of the knowledge that students acquire. This paper attempts to elucidate some of those implications through a proposal for the retooling of apprenticeship methods for the teaching and learning of cognitive skills. Specifically, we propose the development of a new cognitive apprenticeship to teach students the thinking and problem-solving skills involved in school subjects such as reading, writing and mathematics
