Descriptive Review of the Child: Aisha
Crowley, Christopher B.
Schools: Studies in Education, v5 n1-2 p156-162 Spr-Fall 2008
This essay is a descriptive review of the child. It was written in preparation for a collaborative, inquiry-based protocol that was developed at the Prospect School in North Bennington, VT. Focusing on Aisha, a twelfth-grade student, this descriptive review discusses the following: physical presence and gesture, disposition and temperament, connections with others, strong interests and preferences, and modes of thinking and learning. The final section is a reflection on the process as well as how it helped to offer a greater sense of who Aisha is as a student and how to support her as a writer.
