Consequential Learning: A Public Approach to Better Schools (Paperback)


Full Description

In this book, teacher Jack Shelton speaks out about the disconnect between school systems and the communities around them. Shelton’s concept, consequential learning, recognizes that students’ learning takes place both in the classroom and in the community, and therefore suggests the development of pedagogies with ties to both students’ educations and the formation of their personal characters. By encouraging students to use classroom lessons to the benefit of their communities, the students learn critical thinking and judgment and bolster community involvement in school systems.
