Synopses & Reviews
Merging cognitive science with the educational agenda, Gardner begins with a fascinating look at the young child’s mind and concludes with a sweeping program for educational reform. The book shows how both the ancient art of apprenticeship and the modern children’s museum both work because learning takes place in context.
