Education Bookcast

Feb 25, 2021

This recording is the sixth part of a multi-part episode on Professor David Lancy's book The Anthropology of Childhood.

In this episode, we look at children learning through work, including questions such as:

  • When do children start doing chores? What is their attitude to them?
  • How does learning through chores tend to differ by gender?
  • How do young people learn crafts?
  • What are apprenticeships like? Why do they exist separately from the main body of craft learning?
  • How similar are any of these learning situations to school?
  • What ancient institutions might school have evolved from?

Enjoy the episode.
