Example text

Learning to read was not so much a matter of being taught but a matter of arriving at facility as a result of a predisposition to seek understanding within a language-rich environment. For another, reading diagnosis within this period was less about isolating and correcting problems in the underlying skills of reading than it was about understanding how readers arrived at their alternative interpretations of written text (Clay, 1967, 1976). E. Smith & Keogh, 1962; Snyder & Freud, 1967), this new model of diagnosis did not focus on identifying and eradicating the source of readers’ errors.

Specifically, those who approached arguments and evidence presented in text with little relevant knowledge or with a strong opinion proved more resistant to the author’s persuasive message. Besides these investigations of the complexity of knowledge, research on knowledge and learning in this era also turned to investigation of the conditionality of knowledge. This conditionality could arise from domain specificity or task specificity, as well as from social or contextual factors. The new awareness of the salience of social and contextual contributions to learning was evident in the proliferation of such terms as learning communities (Brown & Campione, 1990), socially shared cognition (Resnick, Levine, & Teasley, 1991), distributed cognition (Salomon, 1993), shared expertise (Brown & Palincsar, 1989), guided participation (Rogoff, 1990), situated action (Greeno & Moore, 1993), or anchored instruction (Cognition and Technology Group at Vanderbilt, 1990).

From this foundation, researchers evolved an emphasis on the learning affordances offered in the conditions of the immediate learning environment and saw knowledge as nontransferable between situations or contexts (Sfard, 1998). Within this perspective, learning could not be separated from the situation in which it occurred, so knowledge came to reside in the context itself rather than in the individual learners. From the standpoint of human interactions, as well, certain sociocultural researchers came to the position that knowledge was not merely shaped or colored by social experiences and interactions but actually existed in those interchanges rather than in individual minds (Sfard, 1998).
