“A community that learns is in continual construction of collective understanding born of multiple perspectives coming together,” write Ann Pelo and Margie Carter, in their popular bestseller, From Teaching to Thinking. “This isn’t easy!” they explain. “The give-and-take of authentic exchange does not mean happy-dappy, easy-as-pie congeniality. Authentic relationships ask that we offer ourselves to each other; that we consider difficult and complex circumstances together; that we argue, we make mistakes, we disagree. We join together with comrades and collaborators, yes, and also with people quite different than ourselves.”

Naturally, children are eager for connective relationships, they are curious, they are thinkers. This foundational text is a pedagogical companion for educators that strengthens their own development as thinkers, researchers, innovators, and constructors of knowledge so that they can pass on this way of being to the children in their care.
