Working within the framework of central conceptual structures, we must first consider the prerequisite sequential Page 12 and analogic structures that children already possess for a domain, and determine what differentiation and elaboration of these structures is necessary. Our next task is to create a core context—often one involving an analogy or a metaphor—that serves as a conceptual bridge between the initial, separate schemata and the integrated conceptual structure that is the ultimate target.

As I completed my dissertation study on reciprocal teaching, many was the morning that she met me at her door as the sun was rising, with thoughtful feedback and an encouraging smile that would carry me through the next revision. What I came to understand later is that she had probably retired only several hours before my tentative knocks at her door. Her support did not stop with the awarding of a degree; she was a very dear and steadfast friend. In recognition of her seminal work in metacognition, her outstanding theoretical and practical contributions to the design of interactive learning environments, her contributions to the development of reasoning in young children, and for her leadership and inspiration to other researchers and students, Ann received the AERA's Award for Distinguished Contributions Page xiv to Educational Research in 1991.

Chief among Ann's gifts was her ability to write. The clarity of Ann's writing reflected the fact that she wrote as much from her heart as from her intellect. For example, the children about whom Ann wrote were not just the subjects of her research; thoughts of these children flooded her mind at night; fears of what they would confront as they matriculated to middle school—questions about the possible futures of these children who lived in poverty. When Ann wrote, "what most recent developmental theories ask of teachers is so hard," it was because she came to a deep respect and appreciation for the work of teachers and the challenging sociopolitical contexts in which they do this work.
