Human-centred Education : A Practical Handbook and Guide (Hardcover) (Scherto Gill & Garrett Thomson)
about this item
This accessible guide presents ‘human-centred education’, an approach to schooling that radically rethinks the aims of education, the nature of learning, and the holistic growth of the individual. Chapters include a variety of rich pedagogical examples and practical suggestions to show how the appoach can be adopted as a whole-school initiative, or woven into particular aspects of school life, including the curriculum, classroom culture and feedback for learning. The book also provides step-by-step guidance on how to integrate HCE into teacher training, putting into practice the fundamental values of care, connection and well-being, without sacrificing academic standards and accomplishments.
