Restructuring Learning: 1990 Summer Institute Papers and Recommendations by the Council of Chief State School Officers (Mystic, Connecticut, 1993).
Council of Chief State School Officers, Washington, DC.
In 1990, the work of the Council of Chief State School Officers (CCSSO) focused on restructuring learning--fundamentally changing the relationship among student, teacher, knowledge, and other students in ways that support the development of higher order learning for all students. This publication is part of CCSSO's effort to support attempts to restructure learning for all students. The chapters were commissioned by the council for its 1990 Summer Institute.

Sternberg); (4) "Cultural Ways of Knowing: An Afrocentric Perspective" (Barbara J. Robinson Shade); (5) "Gender, Mathematics, and Science: Trends and Recommendations" (Marcia C.
