"They Start to Get "Malicia"": Teaching Tacit and Technical Knowledge
Stephens, Neil; Delamont, Sara
British Journal of Sociology of Education, v30 n5 p537-548 Sep 2009
The sociological study of education involves focusing upon teaching and learning, upon explicit instruction and the acquisition of the tacit knowledge and skills that are essential if learners are to become enculturated into a new "habitus". Sociological insight into these processes can come from research on conventional educational settings, but is greater when unfamiliar, settings are studied. This paper focuses upon a pedagogic setting of an unconventional kind--a martial art, "capoeira". (Contains 5 notes.)
