It should be introduced, not as so much new subject- matter, but as showing the factors already involved in previous experience and as furnishing tools by which that experience can be more easily and effectively regulated. Education, therefore, must begin with a psychological insight into the child’s capacities, interests, and habits.

This paper outlines a unique learning experience of five graduate research students who progressed from the initial stage of research question conceptualization to dissemination of research results.

I believe that next to deadness and dullness, formalism and routine, our education is threatened with no greater evil than sentimentalism. I believe that literature is the reflex expression and interpretation of social experience; that hence it must follow upon and not precede such experience.

Save as the efforts of the educator connect with some activity which the child is carrying on of his own initiative independent of the educator, education becomes reduced to a pressure from without. This is summed up in the quote, “It is the business of the school to deepen and extend his sense of the values bound up in his home life. It is important to know what is happening in the world-at-large, according to Dewey.


All subjects are relevant to life. Exams are to be used for social ordering rather than individual upkeep. We need pefagogic let children be constructive and pave their own paths, according to Dewey. Education is a social process.

The value which they have is reflected back into them. We people are unconsciously trained from birth. For instance, through the response which is made to the child’s instinctive babblings the child comes to know what those babblings mean; they are transformed into articulate language and thus the child is introduced into the consolidated wealth of ideas and emotions which are now summed up in language.

I believe that we violate the child’s nature and render difficult the best ethical results, by introducing the child too abruptly to a number of special studies, of reading, writing, geography, etc. I believe that the school is primarily a social institution. O1 Offer an organized curriculum aligned to standards and outcomes. I believe that there is, therefore, no succession of studies in the ideal school curriculum.

The child has his own instincts and tendencies, but we do not know what these mean until we can translate them into their social equivalents. I believe once more that history is of educative value in so far as it presents phases of social life and growth.

To humor the interest is to fail to penetrate below the surface and its sure result is to substitute caprice and whim for genuine interest. The progress is not in the succession of studies but in the development of crred attitudes towards, pedaogic new interests in, experience. I believe that the child should be stimulated and controlled in his work through the life of the community. I believe that only through the continual and pedagotic observation of childhood’s interests can the adult enter into the child’s life and see what it is ready for, and upon what material it could work most readily and fruitfully.

Deweyism – Wikipedia

We are told that the psychological definition of education is barren and formal – that it gives us only the idea of a development of all the mental powers without giving us any idea of the use to which these powers are put. If we eliminate the social factor from the child we are left only with an abstraction; if we eliminate the individual factor from society, we are left only with an inert and lifeless mass. I believe that the subject-matter of the school curriculum should mark a gradual differentiation out of the primitive unconscious unity of social life.

Even good grades are not indicative of authentic learning. Fill in your details below or click an icon to log in: When it comes to assessment, Dewey states that grading should be relevant to the child’s own progress.

I believe that the social life of the child is the basis of concentration, or correlation, in all his training or growth. Education being a social process, the school is simply that form of community life in which all those agencies are concentrated that will be most effective in bringing the child to share in the inherited resources of the race, and to use his own powers for social ends.
