Unearthing why

stories of thinking and learning with children

Clare Britt, Jillian McLachlan

Research output: Book/ReportBook


Unearthing Why is a collection of stories offering a distinct and hopeful outlook for the future of education. Each chapter invites you to consider the complexity and beauty of children's capacity to learn, think and be together. Jill McLachlan's and Clare Britt's retellings of their experiences learning alongside children in prior-to-school and primary school based contexts will gently, but compellingly, invite you to join them in considering the deep purposes of education - questioning the 'whys', just below the surface, that inform 'what' and 'how' you teach. Perhaps, as they have, you will find yourself looking beneath the surface of your everyday and begin (or continue in) asking questions that lead you towards new and optimistic ways of being with children and living out your teaching with a new measure of dignity and joy.
