Kanazawa JALT:

Vygotsky-Inspired Practical Pedagogical Strategies

Date: Sunday, February 10th, 2002 Time: 2:00 PM - 4:00 PM

Speaker: Tim Murphey, Nanzan University

Drawing from Vygotskian Sociocultural Theory, Murphey describes and illustrates several ways that students can reveal their mental constructing of linguistic and content material so that others might adjust to them and their Zones of Proximal Development (ZPD). At the same time he shows how these revelations can enhance group dynamics and emerging language identities. The presentation is based in part on Murphey & Jacobs' (2000) concept of critical collaborative autonomy and Murphey's (2001) application of this to the classroom.
