TRIBUTE TO ANN BROWN

January 26, 1943–June 4, 1999

 

It is hard to imagine that anyone familiar with Ann Brown and her work did not feel an enormous sense of loss on hearing of her death June 4, 1999. Her contributions to educational and psychological research and to scholarship were extraordinary, whether measured by their number, their generativity, or their impact. Perhaps more than most scholars, Ann's work can be characterized as a journey—a journey toward a theoretical model of learning and instruction—a journey in which she integrated and applied her vast knowledge of teaching, learning, curriculum, assessment, and the social contexts of classrooms and schools—a journey always focused on the goal of expanding learners' capabilities.
