Summary Laurel Tanner examines closely the practices and policies of Dewey's Laboratory School from their inception to the current day. Dewey's Laboratory School: Lessons for Today provides a wealth of practical guidance on how schools today can introduce Deweyian reforms the way they were originally - and successfully - practiced. It is filled with fascinating excerpts from the school's teachers' reports and other original documents. It will be an indispensable text in graduate courses in foundations, curriculum and instruction, early childhood education, instructional supervision, and philosophy of education and for professors, researchers, and general readers in these fields.
