Editorial Reviews

Booknews
<:st> America's arch-philosopher of education wrote these short pieces out of his experience with Chicago's laboratory school which he started in 1896. Dewey's first piece (1915) argues for making the school into a microsociety of the larger one, while in the second (1902) he seeks a curriculum acting as a kind of program for teachers to follow. Teachers can then guide children toward enough self-confidence to be assertive and exercise their capacities. Cited in Annotation c. Book News, Inc., Portland, OR (booknews.com)
