Classrooms as Learning Communities: What's In It For Schools? (Hardback)

£105.00
Usually despatched within 2 weeks.

Synopsis

In classrooms that operate as learning communities, the social and learning purposes advance together through all participants being involved and engaged in building knowledge. This book demonstrates a new way of seeing and managing classrooms through:









an integration of what's best in learning and what's best in the social life of classrooms

a vision of the role of the teacher that is more creative and more related to the commitments of teachers

a more connected view of schools in contrast to the mechanistic view that currently dominates

an answer to the short-term performance pressures of politicians - better performance.





The practice and vision of classrooms that operate as learning communities is presented clearly and encourages teachers to take steps towards building a more effective classroom with the aspects of learning communities they choose.
