Vygotsky and the Blues: Re-Reading Cultural Connections and Conceptual DevelopmentTheory into Practice (2001)
Explains how cultural connections, particularly within the context of reading comprehension, require cognitive processes nearly identical to those Vygotsky associated with higher-order conceptual development, examining the discourse of cultural deficit and how sociocultural research has countered its historical patterns, comparing Vygotsky's generalization to those of Albert Murray's (1996) blues idiom, and providing illustrative examples from a culturally diverse classroom.
