Freedom and beyond by John Caldwell Holt( Book )

50 editions published between 1972 and 2017 in 4 languages and held by 1,776 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

In his criticism of existing educational institutions, the author calls for a reform not only of educational institutions, but also of the underlying presumptions of society about the purpose and value of education in general. He explores alternatives to formal schooling, examines the assumption on which our system of universal compulsory schooling is grounded, and offers a variety of educational experiments to remedy the faults he finds. He suggests that in order to give the student the widest and freest possible choice to learn whatever he or she wants to learn, not only open schools and free schools are necessary, but also community learning centers accessible to young and old, flexible school days and school years, and systems of "deschooled" learning networks like those suggested by Ivan Illich. Much of the book is devoted to discussing why the present system of education has had so little success in reaching poor and minority students. (Jy)
The underachieving school by John Caldwell Holt( Book )

71 editions published between 1969 and 2016 in 6 languages and held by 1,696 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This collection of previously published pieces focuses on some specific problems of contemporary American education. Criticized are such issues as the "tyranny" of testing, the intense pressures for college attendance, the failure of ghetto schools to educate students, compulsory attendance, reading failures, and over-talkative teachers. The traditional system of schooling is condemned as a "degrading experience" for both students and teachers. The proper role for teachers is to offer help and guidance only when needed and requested by the children. (Nh)

Aus schlauen Kindern werden Schüler ... von dem, was in der Schule verlernt wird by John Caldwell Holt( Book )

2 editions published in 2004 in German and held by 41 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Warum verwandelt sich ein Mädchen oder ein Junge, das unter bestimmten Umständen gescheit, einfallsreich, aufmerksam und scharfsinnig ist, mit einem Wort "intelligent", im Klassenzimmer in einen ausgesprochenen Dummkopf? Dieses Buch möchte Eltern und Lehrern helfen, Kinder zu verstehen. Kinder, die in ihren allerersten Lebensjahren schon ein gewaltiges Pensum erfolgreich gelernt haben, offen und begeistert für alles neue, und die dann, jedes auf seine Weise, in der Schule oft versagen. Warum? Dieser Frage ist John Holt, Lehrer an einer amerikanischen Grundschule, nachgegangen, indem er wieder und wieder versucht hat, sich in seinem Unterricht in die Lage der Kinder zu versetzen, die zeitweise Schwierigkeiten haben. Was geht in ihnen vor, während sie immer mehr verstummen, drauflosraten oder ihre eigene Taktik entwickeln, wie sie viele Erwachsene noch aus der eigenen Schulzeit kennen. Eine Taktik, die auf Angst und Einschüchterung vor einem als fremd empfundenen Stoff herrührt, eine Taktik, die zum "Antwortgeber" erzieht nur, um zu gefallen, nicht um zu verstehen. Über mehrere Jahre hat John Holt sich Notizen gemacht, die viele ganz spezifische und konkrete Beispiele enthalten. Sie machen das Buch an jeder Stelle interessant, aber sie zeigen auch immer, wo man ansetzen muss, um wirklich zu helfen. Und vielleicht können wir so Kinder rechtzeitig davor bewahren, chronische Versager zu werden. "Jedem, der es mit Kindern zu tun hat und dem an Kindern liegt, kann dieses Buch nicht genug empfohlen werden." NEW YORK TIMES

3 editions published between 2001 and 2003 in German and held by 38 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Kleine Kinder, die im Vorschulalter (und bereits davor!) gefördert werden, lernen in der Schule leichter. Der berühmte amerikanische Pädagoge John Holt zeigt anhand unzähliger Beispiele aus dem ganz gewöhnlichen Tagesablauf, wie sich Begabung und Intelligenz eines Kindes fördern lassen. Dazu versetzt Holt seine Leser in die Gedankenwelt kleiner Kinder und beschreibt deren Denkweise. Gerade kleine Kinder wollen mit ihrer ganzen Neugierde die Welt um sich herum verstehen, sie erforschen und sich aktiv in ihr bewegen. Eltern und Erzieher können Kinder darin unterstützen, diese Neugierde bis ins Schulalter zu erhalten und dadurch begabter und intelligenter zu werden. Dafür gibt der Autor in diesem Buch eine Fülle von Anregungen - ein Buch, das Eltern anderen Eltern schenken sollten
