9780871203588: In Search of Understanding: The Case for Constructivist Classrooms

The activities that transpire within the classroom either help or hinder students'

learning. Any meaningful discussion of educational renewal, therefore, must focus explicitly and

directly on the classroom, and on the teaching and learning that occur within it. This book

presents a case for the development of classrooms in which students are encouraged to construct

deep understandings of important concepts.

Jacqueline Grennon Brooks and Martin Brooks present a new set of images for educational

settings, images that emerge from student engagement, interaction, reflection, and construction.

They have considerable experience in creating constructivist educational settings and conducting

research on those settings. Authentic examples are provided throughout the book, as are

suggestions for administrators, teachers, and policymakers.

For the new edition of their popular book, the authors have written an introduction that places

their work in today's educational renewal setting. Today, they urge, the case for constructivist

classrooms is much stronger and the need more critical.
