Teaching with Joy: Educational Practices for the Twenty-First Century
was truly a joy for me to read. I highly recommend the book to teachers who are searching to create learning communities at any level in the educational structure. (Carol S. Kestler, founding director, Arts Genesis, Inc., Tucson, AZ)
While written primarily for those who teach college undergraduates, the book discusses techniques that could be adapted for use with high school students....very readable chapters....Recommended. (CHOICE, May 2007
The chapters in this volume describe counter-cultural, mindful, often surprising, and sometimes moving approaches to teaching. It will be a unique contribution to the field of education, a source of nourishment to those of us hungry for literature in our field that recognizes the holistic nature of teaching and learning.
