Stamp, Laurie Nicholson
Childhood Education, v69 n5 p262-64 1993
The pleasures and advantages of informal learning are highlighted in a story about childhood visits to a fabric shop. Contrasts the unhurried, flexible, self-directed nature of informal learning situations with the more structured and controlled environment of the classroom. Discusses skills and lessons learned in informal settings and suggests that teachers offer their students opportunities for informal learning. (TJQ)
