Originally published in Contemporary Psychology: APA Review of Books, 1979, Vol 24(8), 645–646. Reviews the book, Cognitive Psychology and Instruction edited by Alan M. Lesgold, James W. Pellegrino, Sipke D. Fokkema, and Robert Glaser (1978). The volume contains a large number of papers about reading and memory for text. Probably no other single volume provides so comprehensive an introduction to current cognitive research. Cognitive research and instruction will enhance the trends toward the analysis of more complex cognitive skills and cognitive change. “Cognitive Objectives of Instruction,” is like a missing keystone for this volume. While this research displays the general cognitive preoccupation with the mechanisms and systems of representation generating performance, it seems especially concerned with explicating the complex organization of human knowledge and skill, to put together what task analysis has put asunder.
