This book provides the history of the first years of The Cooperative School for Student Teachers - now known as Bank Street College of Education - a progressive teacher education program. Jaime G. A. Grinberg uses a broad range of documents, including oral histories, to understand and explain the beginnings of this program during the 1930s in New York. The Bank Street program, created and directed mostly by women, was an innovative, alternative, and inspiring case of teacher preparation. Providing detailed descriptions of classes taught by Lucy Sprague Mitchell, Teaching Like That highlights the curriculum for teacher preparation, progressive concepts of teaching and learning, and institutional characteristics. Courses in teacher education, the history of education, women studies, and curriculum and teaching will find a great source of information in this book.
