Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher
"...This text delineates multiple interacting dimensions that frame learners and learning, including life in schools, specific contexts such as cultural diversity and learner attributes, and ways of learning and teaching that are grounded in new learning. Each chapters provides a broad overview and concise summary. Frequent references to an online collection of brief excerpts from relevant documents illustrate and expand upon the concepts presented. This text would be a valuable tool for broad-ranging discussions on learners, schooling, and learning in an undergraduate or graduate context. Recommended..."
--A. Graber, University of Colorado at Boulder, CHOICE

"...the book provides an excellent overview of both the history and implementation of educational theory..."
--Stephen P. Hampe, PsycCRITIQUES [May 6, 2009, Vol. 54, Release 18, Article 5]
