Study Circles: Education for Our Times.
Andrews, Cecile
Paths of Learning: Options for Families & Communities, n11 p32-36 Win 2002
Simplicity study circles examine how the American preoccupation with affluence destroys individual lives, community, and the environment. Through sharing personal stories, people learn to listen and trust their own judgment. Cooperative discussions about specific problems and their causes and solutions stimulate concern for the common good, which, when followed by action and reflection, leads to broad social change. (TD)
