Beschreibungen

<p><span>The book discusses the failed reform initiatives of the 20</span><span><sup>th</sup></span><span> century’s “one size fits all” model for American education. A recommendation is made to adopt a systemic change in </span><span>how, why, and what</span><span> we teach, which takes the form of a new whole-child framework. This new educational narrative fosters a more learner-centered, constructivist, interdisciplinary, and meaningful approach to learning. Positive education offers educators new strategies to develop character strengths and promote well-being in their students.</span></p>

<p><span>This book </span><span>provides an in-depth discussion of the aspects of a whole-child learner paradigm including how educator and school-based influences interrelate with personal and interpersonal demonstrations of learning to create a holistic learning system</span></p>
