Is there a shift in the wind? Are teachers and parents finally fed up? Could the interest in my book on Choice Time indicate a return to joyful, age-appropriate, explorative learning?
There appears to be a genuine interest in moving towards inquiry-based, rather than test-driven, instruction. Heinemann ‘s decision to publish a book that puts this belief out front is commendable. Hopefully their support of the importance of play and inquiry signifies a meaningful climate change that will open the doors to a better educational experience for children.
Sometimes the spirit of synchronicity looks kindly upon us!
If you’re in New York City this Tuesday, I hope you might join me for the official launch of my book.
