Lamberti, Marjorie
History of Education Quarterly, v40 n1 p22-48 Spr 2000
States that in early 20th century Germany, elementary school teachers were seen as low-level civil servants and their teaching methodology was dictated to them by the state. Explains that to free themselves from political and religious authorities, school teachers began advocating a child-centered, active-learning approach based upon recent psychological research. (DAJ)
