Summary
"Created by an international team of architects and designers concerned about our failing education system, The Third Teacher explores the critical link between the school environment and how children learn, and offers 79 practical design ideas, both great and small, to guide reader's efforts to improve our schools." "Written for anyone who has school-age children in their life, from educators and education policy-makers to parents and community activists, this book is intended to ignite a blaze of discussion and initiative about environment as an essential element of learning. Including a wealth of interviews, facts, case studies, statistics, and stories from experts in a wide range of fields, this book shows readers how to connect with the many organizations, individuals, and ideas dedicated to innovating and improving teaching and learning."--Jacket
