In this chapter, we cover the four learning processes as they relate to the Cognitive domain. The Cognitive example we have chosen to illustrate our approach in this chapter is Reading. When we teach people to read, we are trying to enhance or facilitate their ability to manipulate a symbol system, we call it language. The purpose this serves is to help the learner to better organize his world. Therefore, we are aiding the development of thinking and reasoning, the abstract representation and manipulation of a symbol system. We would submit that Reading represents the primordial ooze of such a complex, cognitive process and is essential for all future abstract manipulations (see Whorf, 1956, on language and thought).
