Title: Sociocultural Theory in Second Language Education
Subtitle: An Introduction through Narratives
Written By: Merrill Swain
Penny Kinnear
Linda Steinman
URL: http://www.multilingual-matters.com/display.asp?isb=9781847693297
Series Title: MM Textbooks
Description:

In this accessible introduction to Vygotskyian sociocultural theory,
narratives illuminate key concepts of the theory. These key concepts,
addressed across seven chapters, include mediation; Zone of Proximal
Development; collaborative dialogue; private speech; everyday and
scientific concepts; the interrelatedness of cognition and emotion,
activity theory and assessment. An eighth chapter provides readers with an
opportunity to consider two additional narratives and apply the SCT
concepts that they have become familiar with. These narratives come from
individuals in a variety of languages, contexts, ages and proficiencies. We
hear from learners, teachers and researchers. Intended for graduate and
undergraduate audiences, this textbook includes controversies in the field,
questions for collaborative discussion and provides references to important
work in the literature of second language teaching, learning and research.
