The multiple nature of our participation in communities of practice also means that we can see children as moving between successive age-related communities of masculinity and femininity practice, while gradually becoming less peripheral members of wider, adult-centred gender communities. They do this while simultaneously developing membership of other local communities of practice, such as their school class, their friendship group, their family. These local communities of practice, of which they are members, are related to others in constellation-like groupings (Wenger 1998).

It is practice, in essence, which defines the community: a community of practice is a group of people who do things in a particular way. Shared practices are, thus, what holds the community together, what makes mutual recognition possible, and it is through observation of and participation in shared practices that peripheral members of a community learn to become full members. Lave and Wenger (1991: 95, emphasis in original) argue that legitimate peripheral participation: crucially involves participation as a way of learning ± of both absorbing and being absorbed in ± the `culture of practice' .
