Transformation, no longer a collection path, the publication argues, could be the guideline, and open-endedness is a vital characteristic of the post-modern framework. within the publication, the writer envisages a curriculum during which the teacher's position isn't really causal, yet transformative. The curriculum isn't the race direction, however the trip itself; metaphors will be extra worthwhile than common sense in producing discussion in the neighborhood; and educative objective, making plans and review is versatile and all for strategy, no longer product.
“Scholarly, but direct and to the purpose, [Doll’s] principles make experience to entrance line educators within the genuine global of today’s schools.”
