Describe the term "zone of proximal development" and how you would apply this to a classroom setting?

Answer:

The "zone of proximal development" is a theory pioneered by Russian psychologist Lev Vygotsky. It is the concept that learners are able to preform at different levels based on their surrounding peers. In short, it is the difference between what you can do with help or without help. This is often used in a classroom setting to help boost the performance of lower performing students by partnering them with higher performers.
