Mar Book: Tools of the Mind

Tools of the Mind:  The Vygotskian Approach to Early Childhood Education by Elena Bodrova and Deborah J. Leong

There was a chapter in last month's book "Nurture Shock" by Po Bronson. which referenced this teaching method.  As an extension, we'll explore this process a little more deeply.

Here's the synopsis from Barnes and Noble:  "This unique text provides in-depth information about major concepts and principles of the cultural-historical theory developed by Lev Vygotsky, his students and colleagues, as well as three generations of neo-Vygotskian scholars in Russia and in the West. Tools of the Mind enables teachers to arm young children with the mental tools necessary for learning."

    This is about Vygotskian education? What does that mean? Does HMS use this model in addition to Montessori?
