Presence of mind: writing and the domain beyond the cognitive
Presence of Mindexplores the mind at work, calling attention to the vast area of learning beyond the cognitive domain. The book invites teachers to become alert to the areas of the mind beyond the cognitive domain; become more familiar and comfortable with those areas; appreciate them as vital forces in writing; and help students use them to advantage. Even though the kind of learning described in Presence of Mindhas been neglected and misunderstood, it has great potential, primarily in bringing wholeness and balance to the curriculum. Respected educators, including Peter Elbow, Donald Murray, and many more, express ideas that are new, innovative, and capable of transforming present conceptions of education.
