Summary
"Putting good ideas into practice is one of the greatest challenges facing any educator. Eminent thinkers-John Dewey, Jane Addams, and others-dedicated their lives to producing ways of thinking about education and human welfare that have influenced many persons' lives. At the same time, these renowned thinkers were also trying to solve problems that every classroom teacher faces, namely, how to help children grow and learn as global citizens in a complex world. This pathbreaking book edited by David T. Hansen provides readers with a collection of insights drawn from a diverse array of thinkers that proves there is nothing quite as practical as a good educational philosophy. It will challenge readers to articulate their own working vision of how to integrate the "big ideas" about education into daily practice. Book jacket."--BOOK JACKET
