A Conversation with Gita Levovna Vygodskaya.
Good, Linda; Good, Kenneth
The work of Lev Vygotsky, a Russian developmental psychologist, has made enormous recent contributions to the fields of child development and education. This paper recounts a conversation with Gita Levovna Vygodskaya, Vygotsky's eldest daughter, also a psychologist. There were two foci of the conversation. The first was on the parallels between Vygotsky and Jean Piaget, especially the use of their children as subjects of study. The second focus was on the zone of proximal development, the relationship between studying and development, and its use for diagnosis and teaching. (Contains 19 references.) (KB)
