Philadelphia Friends Schools

Friends Council on Education with Janet Chance and Mark Franek

William Penn envisioned a society dedicated to religious toleration, participatory government, and liberty. Central to this Holy Experiment was his belief that all children deserved a moral education. This book includes images from the 10 Friends schools founded in or near Philadelphia before the 20th century. Philadelphia Friends Schools uses historic images to tell the story of Friends schools' mission to develop the human capacity for love and goodwill, analysis and reflection, respect and responsibility to others—a story that has been experienced by children for more than three centuries. (Arcadia Publishing, $21.99)

Tuning In: Mindfulness in Teaching and Learning

"I am delighted that the contributors to this book have come out to share how mindfulness and concentration can be a pleasure to learn, as well as to teach."
—Thich Nhat Hanh

This collection vividly demonstrates that contemplative methods can be used with any curriculum content. Experientially-based vignettes show children, teenagers and teachers using pebbles, mandalas, literature, beanie babies, yoga, journals, homework, artwork to strengthen the core skills underlying all learning: concentration, observation, relaxation, and open, receptive awareness with a positive, curious attitude.
