Description:

Combining practical and theoretical guidance and illustrated throughout, Out of the Classroom and Into the World visits a rich variety of classrooms transformed by innovative field trip curricula—showing how students’ hearts and minds are opened as they discover how a suspension bridge works, see what connects them to the people and places of their neighborhood, and come to understand the ecosystem of a river by following it to its source. Based on the core principles of progressive pedagogy, this book is a direct retort to test scores and standards as adequate measures of teaching and learning—an inspiring call and a major new resource for anyone interested in reinvigorating America’s classrooms. From New Press.

 "Deeply satisfying."
