Book Description

First published in 1966, Experiment and Tradition in Primary Schools was written to provide an account of the author’s pioneering study of the attainment of young children in schools where the curriculum was shaped by their spontaneous interests.

The book describes the findings of Gardner’s work and assesses them in detail. It will have lasting relevance for those with an interest in the history of education and the development of education in infant and junior schools.
