Reading in the Zone of Proximal Development: Mediating Literacy Development in Beginner Readers through Guided Reading.
Antonacci, Patricia A.
Reading Horizons, v41 n1 p19-33 2000
Compares a traditional basal approach with a guided reading approach. Demonstrates that the fundamental difference between the two approaches lies in pitching instruction to the child's literacy level and the need for dynamic grouping of children for instruction. Gives a Vygotskian perspective of the transactions that occur between the teacher and the student that lead to learning how to read. (SC)
