Microgenetic Analyses of Learning

Date of Original Version



Book Chapter

Abstract or Description

This chapter is based on three propositions: (1) Learning is central to child development, (2) microgenetic analyses yield unique information about learning, and (3) the information yielded by microgenetic analysis is helping to create a vibrant new field of children's learning. The remainder of the chapter provides arguments and evidence for these propositions, as well as describing the new field of children's learning.
