British Primary Education: An Annotated Bibliography.
Haskell, Lucy A., Comp.
This annotated bibliography lists British publications useful to American educators' understanding of educational reform in England and the British primary schools. Since American enthusiasm for open and informal educational methods has grown so quickly, this bibliographic tool is a necessary first step in the systematic, thorough study of British schools as potential models for United States school reform. The bibliography is divided into four sections: "A Brief Survey of English Education," describing the major trends of education in the context of British history; "Pioneers in Educational Thought," accounts of some of the major educational innovators of the past 150 years; "Contemporary Trends in Primary Education," descriptions of "informal" programs and samples of the continuing British debate over the schools and where they should be heading; and "Curriculum Innovations," descriptions of innovations in various subject areas. Two brief sections are added for those who are interested in an American view of British Primary Schools and in general background material. (Author/AJ)
