Schooled is an intimate collection of writings by long time teacher and writer Casey Clabough. The structure of the book is interesting. It is almost laid out as a series of objectives you might find in a syllabus, a rubric for expectations for each learning experience in the author’s life. In this collection, the focus is on the instructor rather than the students. This is a collection of essays on philosophy and living more than teaching techniques. Highly recommended.
