Summaries and Reviews description: Product Description: In this successor to "Primary Understanding" , Kieran Egan focuses on how typical eight-to-15-year-olds are engaged by knowledge and most readily make sense of experience. Beginning with the concept of Romanticism and its corresponding intellectual, emotional and aesthetic characteristics, Egan argues that the middle school years are the appropriate period for the development of what he calls "romantic understanding". He describes how an elaboration of romantic understanding will provide principles for the sequencing of the curriculum that are unlike those currently in practice.
