Themes from Teachers Who Change Lives

25 Sep

In their introductory chapter Andrew Metcalf and Anne Game summarise the issues they found in their interview material. I will give you the bare headings today. I propose to expand on each one with anecdotes or thoughts of my own over the coming weeks.

1. Changing Lives without Aiming to

2. Seeing Potential in Students

3. Teaching as a Form of Love

4. A Passion for Learning

5. The Importance of Authority

6. The Process of Learning

7. Dialogue as an Opening of the Mind

8. Playing Your Part

9. A Full Life
