Summary Supporting the Spirit of Learning presents a powerful case for making the learning process the major focus of the curriculum. Curriculum - the heart and soul of teaching - has too often remained an overlooked component of school reform. The editors believe a new way of learning is necessary in order to develop the skills needed in today's interdependent world. This new framework encourages lifelong learning, systems thinking, and teamwork. Teaching specific disciplines reinforces the all-important teaching of processes and skills such as critical thinking, problem solving, and information processing. The chapter authors of this study describe how curriculum, evaluation and assessment, and involving parents and technology would be different if process and not content were the primary focus of learning. Chapters explore the changes in preservice and inservice training needed to support process-centered education. The role of educator shifts from information provider to that of catalyst, coach, innovator, researcher, and collaborator with the learner throughout the learning process. Written for school administrators, teachers, staff developers, curriculum staff, and the faculty of teacher preparation, Celebrating Process as Content is the second volume of a trilogy addressing the curriculum needs for the 21st century
