Week 3 John holt teach your own – Pedagogical research -10.02.20
This week I have started reading John Holt’s ‘Teach your own’. A large part of my pedagogical research for my practice within the MA is focussed on critical writings by educational authors. The below is an overview of the book by Holt, take from this Amazon blurb.
“Rather than proposing that parents turn their homes into miniature schools, Holt and Farenga demonstrate how ordinary parents can help children grow as social, active learners. Chapters on living with children, “serious play,” children and work, and learning difficulties will be of interest to all parents, whether home schooling or not, as well as to teachers.” (Amazon : teach your own)
This quote “Rather than proposing that parents turn their homes into miniature schools” is especially poignant visually , as the very first image I aim to create this module is a construction , an interpretation of my sons classroom at his last school.
