Hello All,

I did not mean to imply that activity settings is attributable to Vygotsky himself. I know of no evidence for that. My first discussion of AS was in Rousing Minds to Life in 1988; my citation for the concept was Wertsch, 1985. He was writing a lot during that period, and may have discussed the concept elsewhere as well. Mike Cole would certainly know more than I about what Jim Wertsch was reading and writing then.
