- HOW CHILDREN FAIL
DetailsFirst published in the mid 1960s, How Children Fail began an education reform movement that continues today. In his 1982 edition, John Holt added new insights into how children investigate the world, into the perennial problems of classroom learning, grading, testing, and into the role of the trust and authority in every learning situation. His understanding of children, the clarity of his thought, and his deep affection for children have made both How Children Fail and its companion volume, How Children Learn, enduring classics.CONTENTS:1.Strategy2.Fear and failure3.Real Learning4.How school's fail.ABOUT THE AUTHOR: John Holt (1927-1985), one of this country's leading educational and social critics, was the author of ten influential books including How Children Fail, How Children Learn, Never too late, Learning all the time, The underachieving school, What do i do Monday?, Freedom and Beyond, Escape from childhood, Instead of education and Teach your own.His work has been translated into fourteen languages.
