Public education is often viewed as dominated by an emphasis on test scores and narrowly defined parameters of performance and achievement. By contrast, John P. Miller's Whole Child Education fosters relationships between various forms of thinking, links body and mind, and recognizes the inner life of the child.

Addressing issues of teaching, curriculum, the school, and teacher wellness, Miller presents three basic approaches (transmission, transaction, and transformation) that facilitate a connection with the whole student. Practical examples from teachers who have incorporated Miller's ideas into their own classrooms and description of Toronto's Whole Child School (founded in 2009) illustrate how the 'Whole Curriculum' can be implemented on both the small and large scale. Inspired by the powerful vision of Martin Luther King and his concept of the Beloved Community, Whole Child Education is a vehicle for building community through holistic education.

About the Author:

John P. Miller is a professor in the Department of Curriculum, Teaching, and Learning at the Ontario Institute for Studies in Education, University of Toronto. He is the author or editor of 17 books on holistic learning and contemplative practices in education.

Review:

This is a refreshing, rewarding, and informative book. With clarity of writing and real-world examples from a working school initiative, John P. Miller makes his subject matter accessible and exciting. Whole Child Education is a valuable addition to the ongoing discussion about the future of education.

(David Wright, School of Education, University of Western Sydney)

'Whole Child Education is a clearly written, intelligent, and accessible book. With abundant concrete examples and down-to-earth material, John P. Miller's sensible integration of educational methods will serve as a real touchstone for teachers and students alike.' (Tobin Hart, Department of Psychology, University of West Georgia)

'Whole Child Education synthesizes and clarifies the holistic approach to education on a number of levels. While the book has a theoretical basis, it also has clear classroom application; the reading level and content would fit with work for many education courses.' (Aostre Johnson, Department of Education, St. Michael's College)
