Hambrick, Kimberly, Ed.
New discoveries about the brain and how it functions and significant findings from process/product research have major implications for the teaching profession. Connecting these discoveries and findings with classroom methods was the focus of the second annual Making Connections symposium. These proceedings from the symposium provide four overviews of programs developed by innovative educators: (1) "Integrating Dynamic Assessment and Instruction" (Joseph Campione); (2) "As the Curriculum Turns: California's Yesterday is Baltimore's Tomorrow" (Nancy Karweit); (3) "Philosophy for Children" (Matthew Lipman); and (4) "Reciprocal Teaching" (Annemarie Palincsar). The publication also includes comments from the symposium planners and a section on evaluation which describes procedures and results of an evaluation of the symposium's impact on participants. Appendices include biographies of the presenters and examples of the evaluation forms used. (IAH)
