Transforming the Primary School.
Blackie, John
A foremost author on the subject of the British primary school movement addresses himself to teachers, parents, administrators, school board members, and to the general public outside Great Britain--to all those with a mind open to the possibility of change but with a strong determination not to change unless good cause can be shown for it. He deals specifically with the process of change, the reasons for change, what might and might not be expected of it, preparation for it, and the conditions that make it possible. He shows that hard work, sound learning, and the accumulation of systematic knowledge do result from the open classroom approach. Chapters dealing with the teaching of reading, writing, language study, mathematics, and all other activities of the elementary school classroom illustrate the transformation. (Author/KSM)
