What do you call the range of tasks that a child cant do independently but with the assistance of soemone smarter? what theory does this fall into?
Zone of Proximal Development
Vygotsky, social interactionalism
What is a called when another person provides help and support 4 a child to help them complete a task in the ZPD
This theory says that learning is acquired through modeling and observation

Interactionist Learning Theory
Who came up with the interactionist Learning THeory?
Bloom and Lahey
Who states that the SLP is a facilitator and not a trainer or tutor?

Little need for exposure to social interaction, environment modification, or reinforcement
the study of word structure
