Talmud, Curriculum, and The Practical

Joseph Schwab and the Rabbis


Alan A. Block

This book explores the seminal curriculum work of Joseph Schwab in the light of a Rabbinic Judaism to which Schwab did not – even, perhaps, could not – refer, but which Alan Block asserts might be central to a fuller understanding of Schwab’s prescriptions for ‘The Practical’. Using the language and methods of Rabbinic Judaism and Schwab’s eclectic arts, Talmud, Curriculum, and The Practical opens a new, practical perspective onto American education, studying and redefining issues confronting education at the beginning of a new century and a new millennium.
