Lauren W.
Answer:

A summary is an objective condensing of the original text. Paraphrasing is putting the information from the original text into one's own words, often for the sake of easier comprehension. When including a paraphrase in one's writing, one must always provide a correct citation.

Answer:

Some key characteristics are: seeking to experience the Sublime, fascination with nature and the supernatural, valuing subjective experience and feelings over objective reality and facts, rejection of organized religion and industrialization, a desire to return to pastoral or rural life, an idealization of women and children as innocent yet wise, and a celebration of revolution and bucking social norms.

Question:

What is the Zone of Proximal Development and how can teachers use it in their daily practice?

Answer:

The Zone of Proximal Development is a Constructivist concept theorized by psychologist Lev Vygotsky. It is the difference between what a learner can do with and without help. The ZPD is the theoretical basis for scaffolding, where a teacher gradually removes supports as students gain independence and mastery over a concept. Teachers use the ZPD to determine how much challenge students can handle when learning a particular topic.
