A Plea for Spatial Literacy
This report from Nora Newcombe, which originally appeared in the Chronicle of Higher Education, looks at the importance of spatial reasoning. The author makes the argument that education in the United States should focus more heavily on improving student spatial skills, as these skills are widely applicable, particularly in respect to the STEM disciplines. She also discusses sex and socioeconomic differences in respect to spatial reasoning ability. This document may be downloaded in PDF file format.
