Schooling for Change: Reinventing Education for Early Adolescents
Schooling for Change is based on extensive international research which looks at how schools in general, and secondary schools in particular, have been selling our young people short. Drawing on this rich grounding of research but written in an accessible and provocative way, this book explores the possibilities for better schooling for early adolescents. The book includes thoughtful and practical discussions of school cultures that promote positive change in young people; systems of support that weave care into the very fabric of teaching and learning; information about organizational structures that foster good teaching and learning; curriculum frameworks that guide teachers without cramping them; and suggestions for alternative assessment strategies that recognize many intelligences and many forms of achievement.
