Description

"As a child who disliked school grown to an adult who has spent most of my life teaching in one, I have been driven by one central idea: 'There must be a better way to do this.'"

This book features 26 alphabetically-arranged essays on ways in which schools could be improved, from paying attention to "Art," "Beauty," and "Character" straight through to the "Zen of Education" (with stops at "Orff Schulwerk" and "Xylophones"). This book translates the ideals and ideas of Orff practice to all of education.

There are no lesson plans, but compelling arguments for teachers of all subjects to teach more artistically and with more attention to the children themselves. Teachers, parents, administrators and students alike will find ample food for thought in this provocative look at the ways in which today's schools can be failing our children and what teachers can do to restore the promise of education.
