Read full description of the books The Courage to Teach: Exploring the Inner Landscape of a Teacher's Life:I think the genius of this book was just lost on me. I really resonated with the beginning that talked about the "teacher within" and the "unique subjectivity" that each person can bring to the profession. I certainly feel like I have a unique perspective, and that my viewpoints and even personality makes my classroom unique (If I was given the freedom to unleash my style freely).
But the core of the book, I just didn't have the mental patience at this time in my life to take the time to fully process and appreciate. When he started the whole metaphysical debate about the nature of reality and how to establish genuine communities... I just stopped reading. At least for now, I need something more tangible--something I could do in class tomorrow to make a difference in my classroom.
