According to the research findings, it can, therefore, be said that   Dhruv, another child in the class, was a very different matter.   He was uninterested in being involved in the classroom and refused to do his assignments.   During table work activities, he chose to daydream, or draw pictures, instead of doing his work.   His unwillingness to work made it difficult for the teacher, and for the students around him to concentrate.   Dhruv, beyond showing a lack of interest in the classroom, appears uncomfortable with his surroundings.   Vygotsky suggests that children learn similarly to how Piaget suggested, with an emphasis on the social interaction, and receiving tasks of increasing difficulties from their peers.   Because Dhruv seems secluded from his peers and has difficulty with language, it is likely that he has not been presented with enough challenges to prepare him for the classroom situation.   This lack of interest is frustrating for both himself and for his teacher, and the author worries about his future in academics.

Eric is a different subject altogether.   His behavior in the classroom is completely unacceptable.   He talks loudly and interrupts others during conversations and instructions.   He sleeps during class and refuses to follow classroom rules.   He is mean to the other children and does not understand social conventions.   It would appear that either he has not yet found a locus of control for his behavior, such as Freud suggested in psychoanalytic theory, that his ego may not yet have control over his id.   Another possible suggestion for his behavior is a poor family situation, which would account for his inability to stay awake in class.   The researcher is primarily concerned for this child since it is unusual for a child to have such a strong lack of focus and control at this age.   Jarrett is a very sneaky young man, who uses his abilities primarily to get others into trouble while appearing innocent himself.   He uses times when the teacher is not looking to cause mischief, which the other children appear to find frustrating.   He seems intelligent, and his table work takes him very little time, he just does not control his impulse to cause mischief.
