The Unit Process.
Berry, Elizabeth
The educational philosophy of John Dewey has often been misunderstood and misapplied. Dewey and his followers sought a way to provide the young with conditions essential to thinking. For all practical purposes, they considered reflective thinking and problem solving one and the same. Consequently, a method of teaching was devised which was based on problem solving: the unit method. In practice, this method permits students to formulate and answer significant questions in their subject fields. Opposition to this method is usually based on an incomplete comprehension of what the unit method of teaching involves. (This essay contains an illustration of the unit method of studying newspapers.) (DD)
