Laura Thomas Publishes Book on Learning

Laura Thomas, director of the Antioch Center for School Renewal at Antioch University New England, has published a new book, Facilitating Authentic Learning, Grades 6-12, a Framework for Student-Driven Instruction.

In this classroom resource, Thomas says that constructivist, experiential teaching methods are the best path to teaching students to think critically. It guides teachers of grades 6-12 in how to:
• Plan learning experiences that teach content and process at the same time
• Assess students’ development of twenty-first-century skills
• Coach students to do the hard work of authentic learning
• Teach reflection techniques that help students process their experiences and learn from mistakes.
