Book Title: How Children Fail, Revised Edition

Author: John Holt

Book Description:

I received How Children Fail as a gift for my undergraduate graduation. This book is an indelible part of my transformation from music student to music teacher. As a beginning music teacher, my perspective on who, why, and how I should serve in public schools was greatly affected by this classic text. As a teacher, and later, as a researcher, this book helped me discover how responsibility, creativity, and listening are the key components to a successful teacher-learner partnership.
