    15. 15. View of Learner 15  Vygotsky`s beliefs in social learning are the coat- tails that a great deal of his theories ride upon.  Vygostky`s investigations have shown that thought and speech,”are, on the contrary, delicate, changeable relations between processes, which arise during the development of verbal thought.”  Thus, our thinking and speaking are not static. Instead, they are active interactions that constantly change and develop, when coupled with socio- cultural-historical encounters.
    16. 16. Role of the Teacher  Works as a guide or coach when assisting the student.  Creates small and large group activities or learning projects.  Does not provide the correct answers  The teacher helps and supports learner as they struggle with tasks.
