Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

What a learned-centered perspective and model helps us understand is that human beings—individual learners, young and old, students and teachers—bring with them a complex array of unique perspectives, needs, capacities, and strengths. At the same time, they share certain fundamental qualities. The inherent need to grow, live, and develop in a positive direction, for example, is common to all learners. What best supports these inherent capacities and distinctive characteristics? To find out, we asked students and educators what they thought produced the highest level of learning in not only academic areas, but in the personal, social, and vocational realms as well."—from the preface The Learner-Centered Classroom and School shows educators and administrators how they can fill their classrooms with students who are eager for success and motivated to learn. The learner-centered approach focuses on designing instruction that is sensitive to the individual students needs, abilities, and interests rather than rigidly tied to the subject matter. This unique approach emphasizes cooperation, is respectful of the learner, and trusts individuals to be responsible their own learning. The book is filled with useful examples and practical suggestions for implementing learner-centered concepts into any school or classroom.
