Current Research - Rogoff Research Group
Our research investigates the organization of teaching and learning
in family settings and schools. We are examining the idea that in Indigenous-heritage communities
of Central America and North America, children are supported in learning
through keenly observing ongoing community events and contributing in collaborative group engagement. With increasing participation in Western schooling, the learning
approaches of both Mayan and US Mexican-heritage participants resemble
those of middle-class US European-heritage participants.
We have organized a consortium on Learning through Intent Community Participation. This was funded initially by the UC Presidential Chair, and now by the National Science Foundation. Intent Community Participation (ICP)
