Irwin); (6) "John Dewey's School" (J. Katch); (7) "Twenty-Four, Forty-Two, and I Love You: Keeping It Complex" (E. Duckworth); (8) "Assessing Imperfect Conceptions" (H. Dyasi); (9) "Jason and Matt" (K. Hibl); (10) "Looking at a Child's Work" (K. Jervis and A. Wiener); (11) "Grounded Insight" (W. Ayers); (12) "The Kindergarten Tradition in the High School" (D. Meier); (13) "The High School Inquiry Classroom" (A. Cook); (14) "Blacks in White Schools" (F. Moore-Bond); (15) "A Hero for Fifteen-Year-Olds: Raoul Wallenberg" (C. Meyers); (16) "Teaching Science as a Liberal Art" (A. Kaplan); and (17) "Educating against All Odds" (M. Mathias). An afterword by L.
