  2. 2. image: Microsoft clip art Definition of Constructivism Definition of Social Learning “ A theory of learning in which individuals actively construct knowledge” (Tracey & Morrow, 2006, p. 47). “From a constructivist viewpoint, learning occurs when individuals integrate new knowledge with existing knowledge. In this theoretical perspective, the integration of new knowledge with existing knowledge can only occur when the learner is actively involved in the learning process” (Tracey & Morrow, 2006, p. 47) “ The social learning perspective incorporates several different theories, all of which emphasize the central role of social interaction in the development of knowledge and learning. When applied to the field of reading, the social learning perspective emphasizes the importance of social influences and social interaction on literacy learning” (Tracey & Morrow, 2006, p. 100).

  6. 6. Transactional/Reader Response and Metacognition focus on the individual reader and their reaction to what they are reading. Social learning requires an environment where students can learn from each other. The heart of constructivism is actively constructing knowledge. The heart of social learning is the importance of observing and modeling behaviors. Image: Image: Maggie Smith/ Image:
