The Implications of "First Language Acquisition As a Guide for Theories of Learning and Pedagogy" in a Pluralistic World.
Meehan, Teresa M.; And Others
Linguistics and Education, v7 n4 p369-78 1995
The value of James Gee's (1994) analysis of first-language acquisition as a guide for theories of learning and pedagogy is that it initiates a serious discussion of learning based upon the most effectively studied developmental mastery--language. This commentary argues that this approach underestimates the roles of diverse symbol systems and scaffolding. (42 references) (Author/CK)
