The popular image in child development theory sees the child as a solitary thinker struggling to construct a personal understanding of the mathematical and logical properties of the physical world. Derived from Piaget, this individualistic approach has recently given way to a new view of children's learning and thinking.
This second volume of the "Child Development in Social Context" series reflects the most recent thought on this subject which emphasizes the child as part of a surrounding environment. This fascinating set of readings shows the child being initiated into shared cultural understandings through close relationships with parents and teachers, as well as siblings and peers. An essential resource, "Learning to Think" demonstrates the latest progress in educational psychology, and will be of great value to those interested in educational psychology and child development.
