Valerie, I want to say how nice it is that you are making the attempt to incorporate your reading into class discussions and that you are applying it to your experiences at Barrios Unidos. You talked about the description of the zone of proximal development as providing you with a deeper understanding of what you role is when you work with the kids. Can you elaborate on this? Also, do you see any instances where you may be in your own zone of proximale development and it is the kids (one or more) that guide you through the zone and to a high level of understanding something new? Lastly, I want to encourage you to bring up things in class. Your iniative is very commendable and I just want to encourage you to use your voice in class as well as here on the net. Hope this helps, Ed.
