This enduring bestseller remains the most comprehensive examination of constructivism and its relationship to teaching and learning. Closing the gap between theory and practice, well-known scholars make constructivism accessible by showing its application in everyday classrooms. Building on the success of the first edition, the authors have completely updated this popular text and expanded its scope to include examples of constructivist teaching across all grade levels and disciplines.

An ambitious revision of a now classic text, Constructivism: Theory, Perspectives, and Practice, Second Edition is an invaluable resource for practicing teachers, teacher educators, and curriculum specialists in mathematics, science, social studies, and language arts.

New for the Second Edition!

  • An updated theory section that adds further contemporary biological evidence to go beyond the theories of Piaget and Vygotsky―offering a more contemporary framework for a psychological theory of learning.
  • New chapters reflecting the school-based reforms that have been initiated since the writing of the first edition―specifically addressing the changes in mathematics, social studies, and teacher education.
  • A new chapter on the emerging field of disability studies―including a critique that unmasks current practices and assumptions that better serve schools rather than students and their families.
