Home: Education


My work in education is experimental (working with actual colleges or high schools); my writing on this topic is in scholarly or lyrical essays which focus on the nature and purpose – history and philosophy – of progressive education using mentoring relationships (not lecturing) to facilitate learning, student negotiated learning plans, interdisciplinary curriculum and experiential pedagogy (small seminars and lots of field, lab, and studio work), with narrative feedback and electronic portfolios instead of testing and grading.
