Best Practice: New Standards for Teaching and Learning in America's Schools
Greenwood Publishing Group, Incorporated, 1998 - Education - 308 pages
In its original edition, Best Practice was the first book to summarize the emerging standards of state-of-the-art teaching, offering practical descriptions of instructional excellence across the curriculum. Now, in this extensively revised and expanded second edition, we find updated descriptions of progressive teaching in six subject areas: reading, writing, mathematics, science, social studies, and the arts. While the second edition draws upon official standards documents from a disparate array of leading professional groups, it nonetheless reveals a surprising and encouraging level of agreement: The consensus is that students learn best in schools that are student centered, experiential, democratic, and collaborative - yet rigorously challenging. Following Best Practice, we may yet attain this goal.
