Rousing Minds to Life is the education textbook for the '90s: A powerful synthesis of the theoretical advances in Vygotskian theory as applied to every aspect of teaching, learning, and schooling. Drawing on studies from preschool and elementary school through the university seminar, and on their own successful experience with thousands of students over two decades, this text integrates all recent work in the Vygotskian tradition with basic concepts in American and British behaviorism, cognitive science, anthropology, and sociolinguistics. Distinguished by a literate style and an extraordinarily rich content, it is appropriate for courses in educational psychology, curriculum and instruction, educational foundations, educational administration, special education, multicultural education, and any course that treats learning and cognitive development in social context.
