Unschooled Mind: How Children Think & How Schools Should Teach


Unschooled Mind: How Children Think & How Schools Should Teach Cover


Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Merging cognitive science with the educational agenda, Gardner begins with a fascinating look at the young child’s mind and concludes with a sweeping program for educational reform. The book shows how both the ancient art of apprenticeship and the modern children’s museum both work because learning takes place in context.

Book News Annotation:

The author of Frames of mind and The mind's new science now merges cognitive science with the educational agenda, showing how ill- suited our minds and natural patterns of learning are to current educational materials, practices, and institutions, and proposes a restructuring of our schools based upon the latest research in learning.
Annotation c. Book News, Inc., Portland, OR (
