Book Description SAGE Publications Inc, United States, 2002. Paperback. Book Condition: New. Language: English . Brand New Book ***** Print on Demand *****. Contextual Teaching and Learning is an examination of a holistic approach to education. The book provides its readers with a comprehensive definition of Contextual Teaching and Learning (CTL), discussing its origins and philosophy, its basis in psychology, neuroscience, modern physics and biology. While attitudes toward education are often shaped by popular views in science, author Elaine B Johnson outlines the importance of integrating modern scientific discoveries into current education practices. Contextual Teaching and Learning: What It Is and Why It s Here to Stay stresses interdependence, differentiation, and self-organization as the principals that form CTL, as opposed to the dualism between thought and action that plagues traditional views on education. Elaine B Johnson illustrates the relationship between brain functions, memory retention, and teaching methods, and the significance of incorporating real life examples in lesson plans.
