qUncommon Educationq traces the evolution of Prescott College. In this compelling work, Samuel Henrie and others reveal what led to the inception of this special institution, the philosophy behind it, and a rare curriculum that includes adventure education, social and ecological justice fieldwork, and other hands-on and unique educational opportunities. qSam Henrie has made an immense contribution to higher education by chronicling this grand, ongoing adventure in learning. Prescott College's hands-on, feet-in-the-field approach not only makes far more sense than the cattle calls that pass for education at most places, but its amazing resilience and resurrection is one of the most hopeful stories for our times-a true tale of how good ideas really can win if we never give up.q -Alan Weisman, Laureate Professor of Journalism, University of Arizona, retired Professor of Writing at Prescott College, author of qThe World Without Us, Gaviotas: A Village to Reinvent the World, q and other worksHe holds both bachelor and mastera#39;s degrees in music theory and composition, with minors in music history and Spanish language and literature, and a doctorate in education (curriculum and administration) and psychology (human learning).
