Über diesen Titel
"Should be read by all who are not satisfied with the status quo in education."
--Teachers College Record
This book patiently and persuasively asks us to rethink before we `redesign' schools, to question many of our deeply ingrained beliefs about learning and schooling, and to move beyond those which no longer meet the test of common sense. It mercifully gives us no ready-to-implement school reform blueprint but rather the necessary design of how to think well about learning and teaching and schooling.
?Theodore R. Sizer, chairman, Coalition of Essential Schools, university professor emeritus, Brown University
What would it take to educate all children to use their minds well? In this unique book, Joseph P. McDonald provides us with a comprehensive view of the issues that lie at the heart of serious school reform--laying out the attitudes, concepts, and tools needed to redesign American education for the coming century.For five years, McDonald charted the progress of ten schools in the Coalition of Essential Schools as they immersed themselves in the hard work of school reform. He also visited many other schools, both elementary and secondary, in an attempt to understand serious school reform and its prospects. He concludes that school reform requires redesign in three critical areas. The first is a shift in the ordinary and often tacit beliefs of the people who work in schools, the communities that support them, and even the children who attAnd them. The second area, which McDonald dubs the ?wiring arena,? involves internal communication and power arrangements. The third area, called ?tuning,? involves connecting the school to the needs, interests and values of the communities it serves.By describing the efforts of real schools in real places and by recognizing that no two schools occupy the same position on the educational landscape, McDonald has assembled an invaluable guide for tackling the challenge of improving schools.
