Description

This innovative book on school reform addresses directly the curriculum needs for the twenty-first century. The contributors share a new vision for schools that fosters a desire to learn about self, others and the world and to view life as an intellectual and personal quest for knowledge and meaning. The book presents a strong case for teaching process - including critical thinking, problem-solving, information-processing and life-long learning skills - which evidence shows can be more effective than the teaching of specific disciplines.
