This is an exercise in finding the connections between motor and soft skills learning. It is based on the idea that although motor and cognitive domains may be learned differently, the literature treats motor and soft skills learning more differently than it should.
1. The SAID principle connects to Domain Specific Learning. In both training and cognitive skills development transfer seems to be limited. For example, learning to write is too general. High abiltiy involves a specific type of writing: Novel, business email, etc.
However, higher skills development seems to depend on a base threshold that has greater transfer. General Physical Performance is the base on which athletic skills should be built on, especially for youth. Similarly, knowledge of paragraph structure is the base upon which writing skills are developed.
