In these affectionate letters to Francesca, a first grade teacher at an inner-city school in Boston, Jonathan Kozol vividly describes his repeated visits to her classroom while, under Francesca’s likably irreverent questioning, he also reveals his own most personal stories of the years that he has spent in public schools. Letters to a Young Teacher reignites a numberof the controversial issues Jonathan has powerfully addressed in recent years: the mania of high-stakes testing that turns many classrooms into test-prep factories where spontaneity and critical intelligence are no longer valued, the invasion of our public schools by predatory private corporations, and the inequalities of urban schools that are once again almost as segregated as they were a century ago. But most of all, these letters are rich with the happiness of teaching children, the curiosity and jubilant excitement children bring into the classroom at an early age, and their ability to overcome their insecurities when they are in the hands of an adoring and hard-working teacher. From the Hardcover edition.

Inspirierend, ermutigend, provokant: Ratschläge für Nachwuchsautoren Wie muss die erste Zeile eines Buches aussehen? Wie stellt man sich der leeren weißen Seite? Wie erschafft man Figuren? Colum McCann gibt angehenden Schriftstellern Anregungen für den Schreibprozess und praktische Tipps: wie man einen Agenten findet, wie viele Schreibpausen man einlegen sollte und wie man am besten mit Kritikern umgeht. Er notiert Überlegungen zur Einstellung, die zum Schreiben nötig ist, und geht auf die mentalen und philosophischen Herausforderungen ein, die jedem Autor irgendwann begegnen. So entsteht ein zugleich empathischer wie pragmatischer Ratgeber für Schreibbegeisterte.

ABOUT THIS BOOK:"Letters to a Young Math Teacher" is designed to inform beginning teachers about the real world of schools and to assist them with the difficult transition from student to teacher. This is not a methods book but rather supplements those texts to address immediate problems related to such topics as the school environment and discipline; textbooks and curriculum; classroom and standardized testing; and interactions with students, colleagues, administrators and parents. Also included is a listing of useful supplemental and personal texts. The publisher is William R. Parks – www.wrparks.com The printer is CreateSpace – an affiliate of Amazon.com.There are about 12,500 new math teachers who enter school classrooms each year. This book is designed to help these young men and women to meet the real world of the school and classroom. Author, Gerald Rising stated, “What we have written in this book is not a methods text. It is instead designed, separately from such texts, to assist the neophyte teacher as he or she enters the real world of the schools based on our own experiences in urban, rural and suburban schools and my additional decades of work with math teachers.”“Contemporary methods texts do not address these problems. Instead they talk about the interpretation of mathematics content and the application of psychological principles to the design of instruction.”“Student teaching only partly makes up for this. The organization and discipline of the classroom is that of the sponsoring teacher.” READER REVIEWS: "An excellent book for beginning math teachers, this work shows considerable insight and understanding of the real world of the schools and the daily issues and problems that new teachers will confront." - Greg A. Baugher, Mercer University, Georgia"This book presents a holistic view of teaching that honors the complex and important work of math teachers. Novice teachers will find the information essential. Veteran teachers will reflect on their work and make some refinements." - Linda Levi, Director of Cognitively Guided Instruction Initiatives, Teachers Development Group and co-author of Children's Mathematics: Cognitively Guided Instruction."Gerald Rising is a champion at demystifying difficult circumstances by applying eloquent logic in recognizable contexts." - Patti Brosnan, Ohio State University"A common sense approach to teaching mathematics from master teachers, gives practical advice and opens the door to becoming an outstanding math teacher." - One Book One Community Selection Committee MemberABOUT THE AUTHORS:Gerald Rising, Ph.D., State University of New York (SUNY) Distinguished Teaching Professor Emeritus at the University at Buffalo, has been author or co-author of over a dozen textbooks and one hundred journal articles.

Eines Tages findet sie eine Antwort - von einem Jungen, der genauso verzweifelt ist wie sie. Spontan schreibt sie zurück, und der Gedankenaustausch wird ihr zunehmend wichtiger. Doch dann erfährt Juliet, wem sie ihre tiefsten Gefühle offenbart hat. Sie kann nicht fassen, dass die Worte, die sie so berührt haben, von einem Loser wie Declan stammen.

Sam Pickering has been teaching, guiding, performing, and inspiring for more than forty years. As a young English teacher at Montgomery Bell Academy in Tennessee, his musings on literature and his maverick pedagogy touched a student named Tommy Schulman, who later wrote the screenplay for Dead Poets Society. Letters to a Teacher is a welcome reminder that teaching is a joy and an art. In ten graceful yet conversational letters addressed to teachers of all types, Pickering shares compelling, funny, always elucidating anecdotes from a lifetime in the classrooms of school and universities. His priceless, homespun observations touch on topics such as competition, curiosity, enthusiasm, and truth. More than a how-to guide, Letters to a Teacher is an invitation into the hearts and minds of an extraordinary educator and his students, and an irresistible call to reflection for the teacher who knows he or she must be compassionate, optimistic, respectful, firm, and above all dynamic. This is an indispensable guide for teachers and laymen alike.
