Book description

Understanding Practice brings together the many different perspectives that have been applied to examining social context. From Ole Dreier's work on the therapeutic relationship, to Hugh Mehan's work on learning by disabled students, to Charles and Janet Keller's work on blacksmithing, the chapters form a diverse and fascinating look at situated learning. A distinctive feature of the book is the wide range of theoretical and methodological approaches to the problem of understanding cognition in everyday settings.

Reviews

‘Understanding Practice is an important contribution to the direction of the field. It has a cohesive theme that is timely in the direction of several disciplines, including psychology, anthropology and education.’

Barbara Rogoff
