Revisiting Nature vs. Nurture: Implications for the Teaching/Learning Process.
Education Canada, v43 n2 p20-23 Spr 2003
Child development theories conclude that nature and nurture interactively shape individual development. Implications for education are that children learn better when they feel wanted and are in a supportive environment. Teaching needs to go beyond pure content and focus on learning how to learn. Assessment should focus on the use of knowledge rather than recall of lower-level information. (TD)
