Who is a prolific composer whose works spanned both the Classical and Romantic Era?
Ludwig van Beethoven, while not considering himself a romantic composer, certainly set the stage for romantic composers that followed him. His works were firmly rooted in the style and sensibility of the Classical Era, but they also began to embrace ideals of the Romantic Era. For example, he described one of his own works as "more an expression of emotion than painting".
Why is scaffolding so important?
Lev Vygotsky's idea of "The Zone of Proximal Development" recognizes that students achieve the most growth when they are given the right amount of adult support, or "Scaffolds". As these scaffolds are removed, students gain independence, skill, and confidence to complete future tasks on their own.
