14. Looking Around A New Set Of Textual Material
In the last few decades, it has been increasingly seen that children learn holistically rather than in a compartmentalised manner, i.e., concepts of science, geography, history, etc. through a disciplinary approach. It has also been proved that children not only learn through interaction with the environment, but also through talking, discussing, and interacting with other people, both adults and children. This paper argues that with an appropriate question or suggestion, the child’s understanding can be extended far beyond the point which she could have reached alone.
