The Classroom Crucible: What Really Works, What Doesn't, and Why

Edward Pauly, Author Basic Books $22.95 (235p) ISBN 978-0-465-01150-6
The setting shared by students and teachers is analyzed here by an associate at the Manpower Demonstration Research Group in Manhattan. The daily experiences of students and teachers in the classroom are, in his opinion, central to school reform, a patently evident proposition often overlooked as current educational research has largely concentrated on issues of curricula, methods of instruction, and teacher certification. Interactions between teachers and students are examined and suggestions made for ways that teachers, administrators and parents can improve classroom learning. With the failure of so many prescriptive policies and programs to enhance educational excellence, Pauly's realistic and concrete approach to the learning place merits attention. (Apr.)
