In addition to the freebies, I helped them beta-test their current website back in the day. Maybe that is why it is a little clunky...


Are you responsible for beta testing that horrid thing they called an app?

Nononono - the website, when they revamped (will not say improved) in 2014.

Me, too. Obviously our efforts weren't sufficient!

Quote:
YA lucid presentation of what progressive education can accomplish.” (The New York Times)

How should schools prepare students for the Information Age? The successful worker of the future - a creative, independent thinker who works well in teams - would seem to be too self-contradictory to be the deliberate product of a school.

A century ago, the American educator Caroline Pratt created an innovative school that she hoped would produce such independent thinkers, but she asked herself a different question: "Was it unreasonable to try to fit the school to the child, rather than...the child to the school?” A strong-willed small-town schoolteacher who ran a one-room schoolhouse by the time she was 17, Pratt came to viscerally reject the teaching methods of her day, which often featured a long-winded teacher at the front of the room and rows of miserable children, on benches nailed to the floor, stretching to the back.

In this classic 1948 memoir, now in its fourth edition, Pratt recounts, in a wry authorial voice much closer to Will Rogers than John Dewey, how she founded what is now the dynamic City and Country School in New York City; invented the maple "unit blocks” that have become a staple in classrooms and children’s homes around the globe; and came to play an important role in reimagining preschool and primary-school education in ways that resound in the tumultuously creative age before us.

The 2014 edition features a new introduction by Ian Frazier, as well as a new chapter, "C&C at 100", by former principal Kate Turley, and an afterword by Susan F. Semel.

Read by Becky Ann Baker, Ian Frazier, and Kate Turley.

Featured music: "School Song" by Larry Goldings.

City and Country School wishes to thank Kiran Paranjpe, for initiating this production and for assisting in its development.

My cup of tea--I think.

I've wondered if there isn't some better way for kindergarten - ? students to learn than by the rote memorization route. To be honest with you, I kind of feel sorry for them--having endlessly to memorize and take tests and things. However, it seems to have gotten the job accomplished of creating an educated workforce.

Montessori, for relevant ages, is intriguing to me.

As far as language instruction goes, the smart money seems to be on total immersion. I went the usual route in high school--basically listen and repeat, repeat, repeat. I had the opportunity to go to France and be in a total immersion program--I had a benefactor, and everything. If it was physically possible, I'd kick myself for not taking advantage of that.

Yes, I'm interested in hearing what the author of the book behind this audiobook has to say . . . . Thanks for posting the audiobook.

Finally, tubemonkey and I agree on something.

They (apps) wouldn't be so bad if cellphone manufacturers installed enough memory in order to install more than one or two of them, after they've kindly put all kinds of cr*pware on our phones so that there's hardly any room left for anything that we want to install.

Oops, I forgot--tubemonkey and I also share a hatred of self-development, self-help, personal success, ad nauseam books.
