A Server With Good Taste

[from Joel Judd 950802.0755 CST]

Since the only address this old system now delivers to accurately is
CSG-L, my new, more reasonable e-mail address is:


I tried private postings and they kept getting returned (after 3 days).

Tom, Martin, other interpretists of psych literature:

Regardless of how one sees the journal articles that represent the
"state of the art," take a look at what's being taught impressionable
young minds. The fact is, those most likely to actually EMPLOY some
understanding of psychology in their daily activities with large numbers
of other people are being taught S-R and its derivatives as a basis for
making plans [e.g., lessons] and carrying them out.

Three current Educational Psychology texts (title "Educational
Psychology") by different authors, all basically leave students with the
same message:

By the latter I refer to "learning," that is, math operations or reading
skills. The former refers to getting students to do what you want them
to do (like sitting quietly). I don't care so much how one reads the
Bigwigs--what are teachers learning?
