The paper discusses how Vygotsky believed that biology had an impact on childhood development to a certain degree, but that environment was the core of learning for every child (Berk, 2001, p. 254). The paper explains that according to Vygotsky, the child began learning by watching the adults around him or her and then making a decision about how he or she could behave based on the roles that were witnessed. The paper argues that it was not only these roles, but it was the language that the child heard and saw expressed that had a profound impact on both the development of the child and the identity that would ultimately be demonstrated (Berk, 2001, p. 254).
