About the Author:

Eleanor Duckworth is Professor of Education at Harvard University. She worked with Jean Piaget for more than two decades, as a student and colleague.

Review:

“An excellent, comprehensive scholarly work that lucidly explains and illustrates a sound and just education for all children with numerous practical examples and episodes. Duckworth has provided a powerful antidote to the narrow, mechanical, test-driven educational practices that pervade many classrooms.”

Hubert M. Dyasi, City College of the City University of New York (CUNY)



“An invaluable resource for anyone dedicated to the delicate art and craft of teaching. Duckworth shares four decades of investigation into the complexity of learning, the intellectual, moral, and political dimensions of teaching, and the joys of both teaching and learning.”

Steve Seidel, Harvard Project Zero
