Linda Dorn and Carla Soffos, 2001. Shaping Literate Minds: Developing Self-Regulated Learners . Stenhouse Publishers.
In Shaping Literate Minds, Linda J. Dorn and Carla Soffos illustrate how processing theory can be applied to the everyday practices of classroom teaching. An emphasis is placed on the development of self-regulated learners, including the transfer of cognitive strategies across reading and writing contexts. This is a book about problem solving–an internal tool that shapes the cognitive development of young readers and writers. At the same time, it is a book about the role of the teacher and the curriculum in structuring problem-solving opportunities. The authors provide teachers with clear and practical examples for implementing a learning curriculum that is based on Vygotskian theory.
