The Last Picture Show: stark black and white cinematography

"Bogdanovich's coming of age story, set in 1950s rural Texas, is an achingly accurate portrayal of small–town life and the compromises and disappointments that mark the passage from adolescence to adulthood. In contrast to his contemporaries, who experimented with style and new filmmaking techniques inspired by the French New Wave, Bogdanovich looked back to classical Hollywood, utilizing stark black and white cinematography, deep focus and a traditional narrative structure. The film is striking in its lack of nostalgia for the past, focusing instead on the desperation of a dying community and way of life, embodied by the shuttering of the lonely movie house."

One Minute Puberty

"Puberty, the fun and exciting times you had with pimples, uncontrolled new powers, and a thousand things you tried out for the first time. Metamorphosis and change and chaos of becoming a real person are some of the themes that I tried to touch on."

"Lev Vygotsky's (1896–1934) main relevance to constructivism derives from his theories about language, thought, and their mediation by society. He holds the anti–realist position that the process of knowing is rather a disjunctive one involving the agency of other people and mediated by community and culture. He sees collaborative action to be shaped in childhood when the convergence of speech and practical activity occurs and entails the instrumental use of social speech. Although in adulthood social speech is internalized (it becomes thought), Vygotsky contends, it still preserves its intrinsic collaborative character. "
