The Many Faces of Constructivism.
Perkins, David
Educational Leadership, v57 n3 p6-11 Nov 1999
Although most constructivist classrooms feature active, social, and creative learning, different kinds of knowledge (inert, ritual, conceptually difficult, and foreign) invite varied constructivist responses, not one standard approach. Constructivism is pragmatic and should be viewed as a toolbox for problems of learning; teachers should use whatever works. (Contains 16 references.) (MLH)
