Many learning standards and core curricula demand that students demonstrate what they know. Students cannot demonstrate if they sit passively in classrooms, listening to their teachers' lectures. These standards call for a different set of teaching practices, based on constructivist theory. Constructivism is based on a body of research that supports the position that understanding can't be poured from one person's head to another's like water and that each of us creates our own picture of the world through our own personal engagement with it. This book provides practical ways to apply constructivism in a teacher's day-to-day classroom life.
