Let's assume we want a child to learn to climb a ladder. Most conventional learning methods detail how the child should lift her/his leg and put it on the first step. We may also design an activity to balance on one leg. Provided a ladder, young children always tempted to climb if not I would suggest creating something which motivate her to climb up the ladder (you may place a flower up there or so). She would then try different ways to reach the top of the ladder. In the process, she learns to climb the ladder on her own. An adult could be around to help, if needed. The adult may even climb the ladder, to excite and show the child how it's done. The point is, learning to climb a ladder is not objective for the child but the child wants to go up this learning is just a by-product of all his/her efforts. Anand Niketan Democratic School (ANDS) is an attempt of this Natural Learning Environment by organizing resources, design contextual activities which motivate children to experiment with the skill and information and the democratic education to achieve inclusion in schools. ANDS made a successful attempt to create the pedagogical alternative for education at elementary level which I would like to name it - "Natural Learning Model."

Today's youth will face global environmental changes, as well as complex personal and social challenges. To address these issues this collection of essays provides vital insights on how science education can be designed to better engage students and help them solve important problems in the world around them. Assessing Schools for Generation R (Responsibility) includes theories, research, and practices for envisioning how science and environmental education can promote personal, social, and civic responsibility. It brings together inspiring stories, creative practices, and theoretical work to make the case that science education can be reformed so that students learn to meaningfully apply the concepts they learn in science classes across America and grow into civically engaged citizens. The book calls for a curriculum that equips students with the knowledge, skills, attitudes and values to confront the complex and often ill-defined socioscientific issues of daily life. The authors are all experienced educators and top experts in the fields of science and environmental education, ecology, experiential education, educational philosophy, policy and history. They examine what has to happen in the domains of teacher preparation and public education to effect a transition of the youth of America. This exciting, informative, sophisticated and sometimes provocative book will stimulate much debate about the future direction of science education in America, and the rest of the world. It is ideal reading for all school superintendents, deans, faculty, and policymakers looking for a way to implement a curriculum that helps builds students into responsible and engaged citizens.

Approaching school development as a training project for all staff, this book will help schools to work towards collectively selected goals. Excitingly, it also shows how to involve parents, governors and, most importantly, the pupils. This is in sharp contrast to most of the material available for school development, which requires a top led mangement style. The book describes a school development process consisting of two inset days followed up by a series of staff meetings. A set of activities links the events and requires active participation by all staff, working with pupils to complete the tasks. Photocopiable resources on a CD-ROM are included which will help you to use this process to reach an outcome suited to your own establishment and culture. Although the example given is from a junior school the model could be used in any workplace where a unified team ethos is desired. It is equally useful to successful and to failing schools because it focuses on change and development towards an agreed goal.
