Moral Education in the Zone of Proximal Development.
Tappan, Mark B.
Journal of Moral Education, v27 n2 p141-60 Jun 1998
Outlines a Vygotskian perspective on moral development. Summarizes Lev Vygotsky's ideas about the "zone of proximal development" and extends them into the domain of moral education, focusing on an extract from the film, "Boyz 'n the Hood." Shows how the zone of proximal development facilitates moral development differently from contemporary character education. (DSK)
