Classroom with a View: Notes from the Krishnamurti Schools raises and addresses an important but often ignored question: what is school a place for? Drawing from everyday pedagogy in the Krishnamurti schools, it suggests that school is where children learn in an expansive sense — across subjects and beyond the classroom, in the sports field, during a nature walk, a class excursion, on the streets, and not only from teachers, but equally from workers, artisans, poets, performers…

The book details a range of exercises and projects which can enable teachers from a variety of schools to put this vision of learning into practice. Teachers interested in fostering independent thought as well as collaborative work will find this a thoughtful and practical guide.

 

 

Read a blog post by V. Geetha — What is School a Place For? — that explores our early work with creative pedagogy as well as other creative models of education and as a special exclusive, find an excerpted chapter from the book.
