Resource Description
THE COURAGE TO TEACH, Exploring the Inner Landscape of a Teacher’s Life. Palmer. Just about everyone, from parents to principals, recognizes a first rate teacher when they see one. What do exemplary teachers have in common? As it turns out, they all “are truly present in the classroom, deeply engaged with their students and their subject matter, but this engagement comes not from their particular methods or training but from their hearts– the place where intellect, emotion, spirit and will converge in the human self.” This finding explains why so many gifted teachers are turned off, sometimes to the point of leaving, by top-down cookie-cutter approaches imposed by “teach to the tests” policy makers. Anyone who teaches, works with teachers, or cares about education needs to read this book. Is it time to take back the schools from the testing corporations and give it back to those teach from the heart? #B-9163, hardcover.
