Brave New World: A Good News Scenario for Educational Reform.
Lenaghan, D.
A good news scenario about the future of education in the United States includes many things that are already being done and other things that can be dreamed of. One example is the "Awesome All-Stars Academy," a dream of a group of dedicated politicians, administrators, teachers, parents, community members, and students who took seriously their commission to produce and be educated citizens. The "Awesome" program was based on research in four fields: the changing work force, brain operations and intelligences, diversity among learners, and technological tools for instruction. "Awesome Academy" offers a learning environment that understands and practices teaching for learning. It includes the latest technologies for learning, features teachers who are master motivators and guides, and has a curriculum based on future work force needs and new understandings of the way students learn. "Awesome Academy" is the dream for the future of U.S. education. (Contains 41 references, 20 tables, and 4 illustrations.) (KC)
