Keskin, Yusuf – International Journal of Progressive Education, 2014
John Dewey, the well-known figure in progressive education, visited Turkey in 1924. Through his visit, Turkey was introduced to progressive education.

Abendroth, Mark – International Journal of Progressive Education, 2014

This study, inspired by phenomenological and narrative methods, explored the question, "What does it mean to be a progressive educator in the 21st century?"

Urban, Wayne J. – International Journal of Progressive Education, 2013
This essay takes a look at what I call anti-progressivism in education or, more particularly, criticism of progressive education that was so vocal and visceral that it earns a label, at least initially, of anti-progressivism. After a brief introduction discussing the terms in general, I look at three instances of anti-progressivism in the 1950s…

Jorgensen, C. Gregg – International Journal of Progressive Education, 2013

I will explore several…

Waks, Leonard J. – International Journal of Progressive Education, 2013
In "The School and Society" John Dewey noted new tendencies in education, e.g., manual training and nature study. He raised two related questions: (1) how are we to "understand the" new educational trends as reflections of the "social context"--as an "inevitable" effort to bring education into line with the broader pattern of change in industrial…
