[Xmca-l] Re: The zone of proximal development



Completely off topic, but, for what it's worth, my favourite is still
the folk singer version.

Q: How many folk singers does it take to change a lightbulb?

A: Five. One to change it, and four to sing about how much nicer the old
one was.


To bring it slightly back on topic, I have just absorbed a presentation
on emotional competencies in teaching, and I am pondering the role of
humour in a zpd.
