Learning Unfamiliar Cultural Beliefs: A Descriptive Study.
LeSourd, Sandra J.
Theory and Research in Social Education, v17 n4 p316-37 Fall 1989
Presents a descriptive study of the influence of the learner's cultural schemata on instruction. Finds that students interpret new information in the light of cultural knowledge already possessed. Implications are that instructional designs that ignore the influence of background knowledge take a naive approach to the development of a cross-cultural perspective. (SLM)
