Going Against the Grain

Going Against the Grain
Supporting the Student-Centered Teacher

March 1996 | 200 pages | Corwin
Teachers who want to develop a meaningful curriculum, requiring students to develop problem-solving skills and pursue their individual interests, often face criticism from colleagues with traditional teaching styles. Through a rich case study, Elizabeth Aaronsohn illustrates the difficulties of becoming a student-centred teacher within a traditional school which conforms to teacher- or content-centred education. She argues that student-centred teaching ought to become the norm in schools.
