Description - Child-Centred Education by Christine Doddington

Against an increasingly authoritarian background of testing and instruction, concern is growing about disengagement and loss of depth and quality in education at all levels. Child Centred Education seeks to explore the role of Primary education within this debate. The book will inspire teachers and head teachers seeking to make their practice more genuinely educational. The authors capture the current opinion that primary schools can begin to reclaim some of their autonomy, be innovative and become more creative. Based on wide ranging research, the book sets out to revive the creative alternative to the rigid and impoverished learning experienced by too many primary school children. The authors: - Trace the origins and history of the child-centred tradition - Set out its fundamental beliefs and values - Explore its place in education today This book is for teachers, school governors, local authority officers, undergraduate and postgraduate teacher training, and professional development courses.
