Cognitive Consequences of Traditional Apprenticeship Training in West Africa
Lave, Jean
Anthropology and Education Quarterly, 8, 3, 177-80, Aug 77
Addresses the question of the impact of native educational institutions on individual cognitive skills. Examines the Liberian tailor apprenticeship system, and focuses upon tailors' arithmetic skills. Concludes that the inductive teaching learning techniques of apprenticeship training do not prevent the formation of general problem solving principles taught as deductive techniques in formal schooling.
