Of Robins' Eggs, Teachers, and Education Reform.
Nelson, Richard C.
Phi Delta Kappan, v70 n8 p632-38 Apr 1989
Contrasts two fourth-grade teachers' treatment of a student's robin eggshell. One teacher continues with a conventional, text-based science lesson; the other asks what the eggshell means and helps students devise research questions to be pursued in the library and in art class. Also, seven provocative questions are posed for would-be education reformers. Includes 18 references. (MLH)
