Editorial Reviews

Kenneth Cissna
In his previous book, Martin Buber’s I and Thou, Ken Kramer explains the complex thought of Buber to a lay audience better than anyone I have seen or read. In his new book, Learning Through Dialogue: Understanding Martin Buber’s Classroom, Kramer shows himself as an experienced and first-rate teacher, reflecting on his thirty years of teaching, showing how to teach dialogically, and illuminating the processes of teaching and learning as well as the thought of Martin Buber. By describing his efforts to create a more dialogical climate in the classroom, he shows us all how to become more dialogical in our everyday lives.
Susan Verducci Sandford
Kenneth Kramer breathes life into Martin Buber’s educational philosophy in this well written, intellectually engaging, and pedagogically useful book. Learning Through Dialogue not only conveys complex ideas with clarity and vitality, it proposes practical ways to think about the fundamental role of dialogue in teaching and learning. Kramer has crafted a primer for current and future teachers to awaken them to the multiple relational opportunities present in classrooms.
