THE PROCESS OF EDUCATION
In this classic argument for curriculum reform in early education, Jerome Bruner shows that the basic concepts of science and the humanities can be grasped intuitively at a very early age. He argues persuasively that curricula should he designed to foster such early intuitions and then build on them in increasingly formal and abstract ways as education progresses.
Bruner's foundational case for the spiral curriculum has influenced a generation of educators and will continue to be a source of insight into the goals and methods of the educational process.

Review: The Process of EducationUser Review - Leanna Aker - Goodreads
Timeless educational classic. Bruner discusses the role of structure in learning (schema and the like), readiness for learning, intuition, and the desire to learn. His insights resonate with most educators, and they are simple and relevant, even today (book was written in the early 60's) Read full review
Review: The Process of EducationUser Review - Irene - Goodreads
Pretty informative, some really interesting ideas, and still relevant today even though it was written 50 years ago. It really is amazing how relevant these books written so long ago are to modern educational problems... It makes me think of how little we've progressed. Read full review
