Partnership Education in Action, edited by Partnership Education consultants Dee Buccarelli and Sarah Pirtle is a treasure-house of practical ideas and activities for use in the classroom.
This book is designed for teachers, administrators, and homeschoolers. It offers a wealth of creative ideas for implementing the three core components of Partnership Education – process, content, and structure – whether in the classroom, school, or the home. It contains examples of lesson plans, curricula, and models for designing both. This is a hands-on manual written in simple, accessible form by educators. It supports teachers and parents in being thoughtful, caring partners with their students and their children and helps us work together to build a more compassionate, fair and nonviolent society.
The Foundation for Educational Renewal has collaborated with The Center for Partnership Studies to produce this important new resource for educators. It can be used on its own to help educators integrate partnership principles into their schools, but is most effective when combined with the exploration of Partnership Education in Tomorrow’s Children.
This book is a wonderful companion to Tomorrow’s Children that educators will find enormously valuable. Teachers will find a wealth of meaningful activities, lesson plans and resources that speak to their deepest dreams for their students. This exciting publication will inspire readers to put partnership principles into practice in their own educational settings and to make their own contributions to this important new educational endeavor.
~ Riane Eisler, author of Tomorrow’s Children, The Chalice and The Blade, and The Partnership Way
