Why did Vygotsky believe the “zone of proximal development” provides a better indication of students’ potential than conventional achievement tests? In the evaluation section of Chapter 10 of Crain, the author presents a Rousseauist critique of this concept. Discuss one (1) of the points the author makes. Please limit your response to 600 words maximum and minimum 400.
You are to use authorized sources (our course materials) when answering the questions. This will include an in-text citation at the end of the sentence whether it’s a direct quote or paraphrase that will look something like, “(Crain, p. 10).” If you go to outside sources (I highly do not recommend), you must provide the in-text citation and a separate full APA reference. I will assume you have made a good judgment of the quality of the source, i.e., scholarly and peer reviewed. For instance, a “bad” source could be a religious group’s “research” being used to support corporal punishment on children that misbehave…quite speculative. -Only 1 outside source is permitted.-All of your work will be checked via SAFEASSIGN for a plagiarism check. DO NOT type the answer into the COMMENT box. Anything over 50% match will not be counted/graded. I mentioned this is a social science course therefore matches will be inevitable and citing of sources is crucial. Anything above a 20% will be checked further by me.
