Initially published in 1985, Marching to Different Drummers was one of the first sources to pull together information on what was a newly flourishing topic in education. Now, more than a decade later, this revised and expanded edition takes a fresh look at the subject. Among the new chapters are a discussion of the importance of knowledge about students' culture, learning styles in light of recent discoveries about the functioning of the brain, and how learning styles relate to Howard Gardner's theory of multiple intelligences.
