Key questions: How does each author define “teaching”? Why is it important to understand how children learn from others? What evidence does each author present to support their argument? What are the implications of each argument (i.e. if X is true, what does that tell us about social learning)? What are the strengths and weaknesses of each argument? Take a position; which author do you agree with and why?
