Communities of Learners and Communities of Teachers

By Lee S. Shulman

Mandel Foundation, 1997

The author begins by describing the concept of communities of learners, then it addresses the following questions: What are the underlying principles which explain how these learning communities work as well as they do? What are the fundamental principles? Why is it that we so rarely find these principles put into practice? How can the most critical component of the educational system learn to employ these principles? And most important of all: What are the conditions under which teachers can learn to engage in this kind of teaching?
