Editorial Reviews

Joe De Vitis
"This book translates Deweyan theory and practice into common-sense, readable, and lucid language. It extends and challenges thinking about the work of teaching, the larger contexts in which it occurs, and the many roles of teachers as change agents. It will also promote novel ways of thinking about teaching for those entering the profession—and for those who strive to teach more thoughtfully. "
Ranae Stetson
"This text is an intriguing alternative to the steady diet of 'how to' texts that dominate educational readings. "
John Portelli
"At a time when critical-reflective teaching is constantly in jeopardy, John Dewey and the Art of Teaching is very refreshing. Both prospective and experienced teachers should find this work helpful if they are serious about realizing democratic values. Policy makers need to take the time to read this work to be reminded of the core values of democratic education. "
Tony Johnson
"The authors, by championing the relationship of art to education, offer a much needed counterbalance to our society’s over-reliance on standardized testing. I enthusiastically endorse this work and would readily use it in both undergraduate social foundations of education and masters’ level philosophy of education courses. "
Jackie Blount
"At last we have a volume that beckons the uninitiated reader into a study of Dewey’s significant ideas about the art of teaching. The authors demonstrate great intellectual integrity in describing these ideas while expressing them in practical, even elegant prose. "
Choice Magazine
"In sum, this is a valuable introduction to Dewey's major ideas about schooling that is accessible to readers who might be either daunted by engagement with the original or inclined to consider Dewey too esoteric or irrelevant to their daily concerns. "
