Resource Description
STARTING STRONG, A Different Look at Children, Schools and Standards. Carini. It would seem that each decade education styles can be characterized in a word or two - creative approach, inquiry-oriented technique, child-centered, etc. We now seem to be living in the age of corporate assessment - children are bombarded with one standardized test after another and schools are even rewarded based on those scores, none of which measure the development of what might be called humanness. Is it possible that some of the most important things children can learn are lost in testing mania? Looking for a way to add a dash of humanity back into the process? This book offers insight that can help teachers, administrators and parents liberate education from “assessment mania,” much to the benefit of the children. #B-12087.
