Rote Learning in a Performance-based Pedagogy.
Dale, Moyra Buntine
Australian Journal of Adult Learning, v41 n3 p359-73 Nov 2001
An ethnographic study of adult literacy classes in Egypt depicted rote recitation, copying, and dictation as forms of ritual that maintain social order. A sequence of framing, modeling, practicing, performing, and evaluating was followed. Focus was on correct performance rather than interpretation, comprehension, or critical evaluation. (SK)
