Reforming Education by Mortimer J. Adler — Selected Chapters
This PDF file contains 5 of the chapters from this book most concerned with student-centred learning and
constructive teaching issues. There are parts in each of these chapters that may not be so relevant, but I'm sure
that you will find a lot that is.
This book is copyright by its author, but since it is out of print, I am making these chapters available
for study only. Please do not make copies or in any other way distribute the book. Let's hope that it eventually
comes back into print.
