Democratic Practice Workbook first examines democratic teaching philosophy and then provides concrete, step-by-step techniques for teachers to apply this philosophy to field observations and reflective teaching. No other text uses the philosophy behind democratic practice to inform the field experience. This brief, hands-on field observation/participation guide features specific suggestions for reflection during field observation and uses case studies to further illustrate how democratic principles can be exercised in the classroom. The text is designed with a complete resource set of focused observation forms for the student to use out in the field. It offers a complete guide for students’ term projects, multiple formats for classroom discussions, a model for curriculum development in democratic practice, and a beginning set of student written lesson plans.
