Cultural Ways of Learning: Individual Traits or Repertoires of Practice.
Gutierrez, Kris D.; Rogoff, Barbara
Educational Researcher, v32 n5 p19-25 Jun-Jul 2003
Examines how to characterize commonalities in learning approaches of individuals from educationally underserved ethnic groups, disagreeing with the common assumption that regularities are static and individuals' general traits are attributable categorically to ethnicity. Suggests that a cultural-historical approach can help move beyond this assumption by focusing on variations in individuals' and groups' histories of engagement in cultural practice. (SM)
