Overview

The Beat of a Different Drummer: Essays on Educational Renewal in Honor of John I. Goodlad is a collection of essays by friends, colleagues, and scholars who have been profoundly influenced by Goodlad's seminal thinking and half century of research and scholarship on educational change and school improvement. With diversity in styles and topics, these writers contribute to this festschrift by focusing on one or more key ideas in Goodlad's work, while extending and complementing them in the context of their own research and scholarship. Although the primary purpose of this volume is to celebrate the work of one of America's preeminent educators, readers will find a series of provocative essays that will help to keep alive the essential conversation about the problems of, and hopes for, educational renewal in our democratic society.

Editorial Reviews

Diana Natalicio
John Goodlad's steadfast faith in public education as a cornerstone of our democracy, as well as his positive approach to educational reforms, serve as refreshing counterpoints to the strident criticism that schools, teachers, and teacher education programs have increasingly been subjected. This tribute to him celebrates his profound professional and personal commitment to children and the schools that serve them; it conveys both the substance and the fundamental spirit of his work.
Howard Gardner
Inspired by John Goodlad's remarkable half century as an educational thinker and practitioner, twenty-two essayists provide an unparalleled panorama of educational issues-past, present, and future. Through their words of tribute, Goodlad emerges as the American educator who has today inherited the mantle of John Dewey.
Booknews
