Merchandise Description

No. 326 | The Learner-Directed Classroom: Developing Creative Thinking Skills Through Art
Diane B. Jaquith and Nan E. Hathaway, Editors

Educators at all levels want their students to develop habits of self-directed learning and critical problem-solving skills that encourage ownership and growth. In The Learner-Directed Classroom, practicing art educators (PreK–16) offer both a comprehensive framework for understanding student-directed learning and concrete pedagogical strategies to implement student-direct learning activities in school. In addition, research-based assessment strategies provide educators with evidence of student mastery and achievement. Teachers who structure self-directed learning activities can facilitate effective differentiation as students engage in the curriculum at their level. This book provides evidence-based, practical examples of how to transform the classroom into a creative and highly focused learning environment. Published by Teachers College Press.


Book Features:

  • Guidance for implementing a learner-directed program, including advocacy, management, differentiated instruction, and resources.
  • Attention to the needs of specific groups of students, including preadolescents, gifted and talented learners, boys, and those with learning differences.
  • Insights into reflective practice and strategies for assessment of learning.


“It is easy to proclaim creativity important and criticize current practices and then offer no actual solutions. This volume is filled with practical tips and hands-on advice aimed at improving self-directed student learning. Any classroom teacher interested in helping students learn, discover, and create will want to read and reread this book.” 

 —James C. Kaufman, Professor of Psychology, CA State University, San Bernardino, and
