An Elementary School in Holland: Experiment in Educational Practice

Front Cover
International Books, 1996 - Education - 256 pages
Loren Barritt is professor of education at the University of Michigan. He spent a year in a Dutch elementary school, studying the Dutch approach to teaching and observing how teachers make decisions in both the classroom situation and in staff meetings, and analysing the effectiveness of these decisions for the children.
In contrast to the US system, the emphasis in Dutch elementary schools is not only on measurable learning achievements but also on everyday events, as these create the structures in which the child lives.
