Diane Ravitch thinks otherwise. Education, like most professions, has its own unique vocabulary that is often unfamiliar to outsiders. But unlike those of other professions, Ravitch Have you ever heard of Suggestopedia? Do you know what a gallery walk is? How about the difference between a stem and a foil? Maybe you don't think it's necessary to know these education terms. Diane Ravitch thinks otherwise. Education, like most professions, has its own unique vocabulary that is often unfamiliar to outsiders. But unlike those of other professions, Ravitch contends, the language of education must be clear and intelligible to all.

    ممتع. قاموس تربوي للمصطلحات التربوية. تتنوع المصطلحات من العامة جدا إلى المتخصصة التي لا تستخدم إلا في نطاق تربوي. قراءتي للكتاب كانت جميلة و ممتعة. زاد من المتعة اكتشافي أني أعرف معظم المصطلحات المتخصصة الواردة في الكتاب. أخيرا، بعض شيء يشعرني بفائدة 5 سنوات دراسة في البكالوريوس و الماجستير.
