Deanna Kuhn’s ‘inquiry and argument curriculum’ has transformed the lives of our middle schoolers, who are typical of students in any urban public school. The students become engaged and find personal meaning in their schoolwork in a way that’s new to them and to us. I hope this bold and original proposal will change American education.—Gardner Dunnan, Associate Provost for Special Projects, Columbia University

In the best tradition of John Dewey and Jerome Bruner, Deanna Kuhn has authored a thoughtful, thought-provoking, and empirically-grounded essay on the centrality of argument and inquiry in all education.—Howard Gardner, Hobbs Professor of Education and Cognition, Harvard Graduate School of Education
