Abstract

Teachers often seek unifying themes that help students develop an integrated and coherent mental representation of the course material. Without such themes, material that seems integrated to the teacher often can be disparate and incoherent to the student. In the study of cognitive psychology, the theme of intelligence provides a powerful way of unifying the disparate material of a wide-ranging course.
