“Read and be inspired” Courtney Cazden, Harvard Graduate School of Education

What is especially unique about the book is that it offers a parallel process of coming to know for the adult and child learner—a way of knowing that engages the emotions as well as the intellect and ultimately stimulates the desire to continue to learn. Therefore there are two excerpts, one of children engaged in a discussion that reflected the impact of their neighborhood study, and one of educators in 1948 and in 2006 confronting similar environmental situations.
