Our goal was to describe the way certain
dynamic acts become part of a new system of acting: how people's
relationships change, how they can be changed deliberately; how these
processes start to produce a new quality in the way people understand
and feel. One can call this "ways of thinking", because in a way they
are that, but our unit of description and analysis was always a unit
of acting that produces new meanings.

I can support through experience, this aspect of the position. I
deliberately change my students attitude toward learning mathematics. I do so in several
1) The first hour of class is spent with me getting to know them and
their getting to know me.
2) The second hour is spent in their getting to know each other; both
through a structured activity and through placement in groups around tables.
3) I structure the mathematics formally through a short presentation and
then informally present the groups with problems that they solve through
questioning of me and dialog within the groups.. [Very much ZPD in form.]
4) My main thrust is - no student is alone and there is always support for
their learning success.
