Russian Vygotsky Summer School 2009
“Total Immersion in the Golden Key School Methodology”
Place: Belaya Kalytva, Russia
June 19 – 26, 2009

You are invited to participate in the 2009 Vygotsky Summer School, to take place in Belaya
Kalytva, Russia from June 19-26, 2009.
This summer school will take place in a Golden Key
elementary school, with professors/staff/students from the Vygotsky Institute of Psychology, Russian State University for the Humanities, Moscow, and others, attending. We will join the staff and students/parents in the village of Belaya Kalytva (approx. 26 hours south of Moscow), and participants will stay in one hotel, and will come to the school each day for the events. The Program Committee will prepare an overview of the Golden Key concept by introducing the curriculum for various levels in depth, according to the different grade levels of instruction, from early childhood until around 11 years of age.

Participants will have the opportunity for participation, presentations, questions, role-playing themselves, and learning about how a Vygotskian methodology is practiced in education in Russia. You will also have the unique opportunity of becoming acquainted with the Vygotsky family/and team today. Participants will be immersed in how the Golden Key elementary school environments are created, within an integrated curriculum, understanding how the ZPD is interpreted.

Price: (with no exceptions):
Regular registration fee: $200
Student registration fee (for students under 30): $100
IVS member fee: $150

The registration fee will include printed materials, workshops, all lunches, tours around Belaya Kalytva, welcoming party, and a banquet, and bus transfers from the hotel to the Golden Key school each day.

You will be responsible for: your visa application, flight to/from Moscow or Rostov-on-Don,
transfer from/to airport , hotel in Moscow and/or hotel in Belaya Kalytva (which will be
arranged for the group), international health insurance, and evening meals. Due to the
international financial situation, all prices are subject to change. We are keeping the
registration as low as possible.

In order for the Vygotsky Summer School 2009 to take place, we will need to have your registration form, and flight information [scanned and e-mailed], by May 15, 2009. There must be at least 15 participants, with plane tickets purchased for the Summer School to take
place. Once we hear from you, you will be sent an application form. And, once we receive that form, together with a scanned copy of your airline ticket, we will begin working with you
individually. Remember that you will need around one month for the Russian visa process.
However, if we do not reach this number of participants, please know that you can attend the
seminar in Belaya Kalytva on your own.
