Resource Description
LEARNING BY HEART. Barth. As schools become more and more test-oriented, they become increasingly an adult-centered rather than a student-centered enterprise. It is no surprise that a student’s natural excitement and curiosity about the world are increasingly thwarted by the school experience. This book offers concrete strategies for achieving fundamental, systematic school reform, building schools rich in community, learning, and leadership. Rather than the current “no school left alive” philosophy, author seeks to build schools that are hospitable to human learning rather than driven by test-focused federal mandates that are destroying the learning spirit of both students and teachers. In an engaging conversational style, he suggests how school people can become the architects, engineers, and designers of their own schools-and their own destinies. #B-13019.
