Teach Boldly! PDF ePub eBook

Books Info:

Teach Boldly! free pdf In today's public schools, teachers are often discouraged by the restrictions placed on them by the education system: federal mandates such as "No Child Left Behind", excessive emphasis on standardized testing, pre-packaged curricula, inadequate funding, overcrowded classrooms, cultural incongruence, and social injustices. Teachers feel thwarted from meeting the unique needs of each student, and students continue to fall between the cracks in the system. This book encourages educators to teach boldly, using wisdom and courage to do what they know is best for their students despite the obstacles. A collection of letters from leading educators and scholars to practicing and future teachers, "Teach Boldly!" offers advice, encouragement, and inspiration in the form of bold, innovative ideas to ignite teachers' passion for their work in the midst of a range of discouraging situations. The book can be used as a resource for practicing teachers or as a textbook in teacher education programs. It is relevant to courses in foundations of education, curriculum studies, issues in education, education policy, critical pedagogy, ethics in education, school reform, and educational leadership.
