    I wonder if the authors have ever been exposed to dialogue as a critical pedagogy. Based on the work of David Bohn and designed to promote better understanding rather than aimed at the traditional curriculum. I would be interested in talking about their objectives from a different reference frame and a different operational vocabulary. This approach is directed at revealing and examining the assumptions that support both the collective (objective reality) and the personal or subjective reality and how these very different but complimentary notions of reality support a viable and transformational sense of self.

    No biggee. That’s David “Bohm” (with an M) … just in case anyone is trying to look him up on line. Good stuff.

    the edcast sounds like they are focusing on nonfiction…what about is reading workshop where students are reading individual books that we as teachers don;t alwasy know well..there can be 23 different books at one time?

    Before I purchase the book, I would like to know; how is “Make Just One Change” different from Kuhlthau’s “Guided Inquiry: Learning in the 21st Century”?
    Thanks
