The Development of Moral Reflection in the Early Childhood Classroom.
Buzzelli, Cary A.
Contemporary Education, v66 n3 p143-45 Spr 1995
This article examines Vygotsky's and Bakhtin's work as it relates to moral reflection. A sociocultural approach based on Vygotsky's and Bakhtin's work provides the theoretical underpinnings for engaging children in authentic, critical, and reflective discourse. It is through such communicative exchanges that teachers help children develop self-regulation and moral reflection. (SM)
