Schools of thought :how the politics of literacy shape thinking in the classroomby Rexford G Brown
Synopses & Reviews
Brown's in-depth examination of how policy reform translates into change classroom practices not only shows us what is working and what isn't, it also explains why. The classroom scenes are alive with the struggle to develop thinking skills in a system that gives us only what we ask for.
"Brown imaginatively and uniquely connects rich portraits of classrooms with a vision of how public policy can encourage thoughtfulness in our schools."
—Theodore R. Sizer, chair, Coalition of Essential Schools
