Other Worldly Learning

When students rely upon digital information to learn about other cultures and cities, what are the dangers? How can teachers guard against students experiencing "virtual social studies" and picking up glib, tourist views of other lands? McKenzie suggests teaching strategies and offers up a "Veracity Model" to guide student exploration.

About the Author

No Room at the School

How does the crowding of good schools improve learning? The new rules from the Ed Department promise parents the right to move children from a so-called failing school to a so-called successful school whether there is space available or not.

No child left behind? Will some of the radical "reform" strategies of the current federal education law actually undermine the success of public schools?
