In this qlively, provocative and well-researched booka€ (Theodore Sizer), AlTe Kohn builds a powerful argument against the qback to basicsa€ philosophy of teaching and simplistic demands to qraise the bar.a€ Drawing on stories from real classrooms and extensive research, Kohn shows parents, educators, and others interested in the debate how schools can help students explore ideas rather than filling them with forgettable facts and preparing them for standardized tests. Here at last is a book that challenges the two dominant forces in American education: an aggressive nostalgia for traditional teaching (qIf it was bad enough for me, ita€™s bad enough for my kidsa€) and a heavy-handed push for Tougher Standards.Wilson, Suzanne M. aquot;Deeply Rooted Change: A Tale of Learning to Teach Adventurously.aquot; In Teaching for ... aquot;Project-Based Learning: Pursuits with a Purpose. ... aquot;Assessment of a Problem-Centered Mathematics Program: Third Grade.
