Fishing and Vygotsky's Concept of Effective Education.
Vinson, Beth McCulloch
Young Children, v56 n1 p88-89 Jan 2001
Relates Vygotsky's concept of zone of proximal development to a fishing story, thereby providing a scaffold allowing preservice students to better understand the educational concept. Concludes that educators should use the right bait (determined by how engaged children are), technique, and progress at the right pace (evidenced by children's success). (KB)
