The New College Classroom
The final installment in the “How We Know” Trilogy, The New College Classroom, co-authored with Dr. Christina Katopodis, is the “installation guide” that applies the big ideas of the earlier volumes. Combined with extensive research in active learning, radical pedagogy, and learning science, Davidson and Katopodis translate these ideas into ready-to-use strategies for instructors to incorporate into any course today.
“Bold, brilliant, and beautiful. Davidson and Katopodis challenge us to reimagine what happens in the classroom.”
—Farah Jasmine Griffin, author of Read Until You Understand and William B. Ransford Professor of English and Comparative Literature and African American Studies at Columbia University
In honor of the publication of The New Education, the author contributes to a scholarship fund created at the Graduate Center, CUNY.
