Designing Learning Environments that Support Thinking 25 Planl: Emily thinks that the quickest way to rescue the eagle would be for Larry to fly from Cumberland City to Boone's Meadow and back the same way. Will this plan work and if so, how long will it take? KEY: CC =Cumberland City; B =Boone's Meadow; H =Hilda's Is there enough landing area at Boone's Meadow? Emily first wanted to figure out if Larry would have enough space to land at Boone's Meadow. The vet said that most planes need about feet of runway, and that Boone's Meadow was half of that distance.

To do so, one might show "Rescue at Boone's Meadow" to fifth and sixth grade students who are then randomly assigned to one of two conditions: (1) A highly structured "model 2" condition with workbook-like exercises such as those in Table 2 versus (2) a generative condition that provides some general guidelines for how to approach the problem and then lets students attempt to solve the problem by working in groups. It seems clear that, for many types of assessments, Model 2 might well seem superior to or at least as good as Model 3.
