From the acclaimed coauthor of A Manual for Direct Action comes Facilitating Group Learning, an essential resource designed to help educators, trainers, workshop leaders, and anyone who assists groups to learn.

This approach focuses the encounter between teacher and group; it replaces scattered attention of a teacher preoccupied with curriculum and participants p
