This text elaborates on Eleanor Duckworth's work in teaching and learning. Duckworth and six of her colleagues describe learners (who range in age from five to adulthood) coming to connect with seven different subject matters - from politics to poetry, medicine to mapping. The findings offer a look at people involved in real learning. Features include: critical examinations of philosophical and psychological ideas about learning; examples of the power of the human mind to come alive across a range of subject matters and situations; and suggestions for pedagogical and curricular pathways that schools can initiate. Chapter contributors include Hallie Cirino, Mary Kay Delaney, Isabella Knox and Namane Magau.
