While many volumes have been written about the social context of children's learning, less attention has been given to the cultural context in which cognition and learning take place. This book focuses precisely on the cultural aspects of learning and cognitive processes, in a full-blown examination of theory, methods, findings, and applications in this area. In examining how to apply sociocultural theory to learning across the lifespan, the chapter authors cover such topics as family context, peer interaction and formal education. The interactive domains that adults and children use to create learning situations are explored with several chapters on children's learning and the ways that cognitive processes shape and are reciprocally shaped by development, including the growth of moral concepts.
