Editorial Reviews

Review

“The authors have assembled a wonderful collection of classic and new essays by some of the masters in the field. You will experience the exhilarating highs and crushing lows that teaching offers. If you can’t get engaged by these essays, check your pulse to make sure you still have one.”

(Gerald W. Bracey )

The writings were so cool to read. They actually made me want to be a teacher. The more technical ones are fascinating to see how the school system actually operates. I kept this book.

For years, I tried to find a decent text on educational foundations. The books available are huge, generic, way over priced, stodgy, and basically not at all helpful if you want students to really think for themselves, develop their own foundations for and about teaching, and become the innovative educators of the future. Finally, here is a book that engages students to the degree that thinking and discussion become the class and the learning. This book is powerful, unafraid, varied, on-target, inventive, cutting edge. You won't be disappointed.
