In this book, the author explores the mental developmental of children. unlike Piaget, Rogoff sees learning as an apprenticeship - a social activity that is mediated by parents and peers who support and challenge the child's understanding and skills. The author examines the dynamic relationship between thinking processes and the cultural context, gathering evidence from various areas. By integrating available evidence and her own research, Rogoff provides a coherent and broadly based account of cognitive development in the sociocultural context. Written in a provocative and engaging style, the text is supplemented by forty photographs and original drawings by the author.
