Junior schoolchild as a subject of learning activity: Typological analysis

The first results of longitudinal study based on El'konin - Davydov's educative system show which individual features assist and which oppose participation in joint learning activity. The method of the study employs marking out of typological groups accordingly to interpsychic learning action characteristics and the evaluation of children's (in-cluded in qualitatively different groups) prevailing personal and intellectual features. It is demonstrated that the number of real subjects of learning activity after two years of education has doubled. These children differ from their classmates by two characte-ristics: non-verbal factors in their intellectual profile are more pronounced than verbal ones; the children possess the trend to self-change.
