Education activist William Ayers invites new and prospective teachers to consider the deepest dimensions of a life in teaching.
Should I become a teacher?
How can I get to know my students?
What commitments come with me into the classroom?
How do I develop my unique teaching signature?
In his new book, about Becoming a Teacher, Ayers muses on 10 such questions (and a little more) to shape and structure an indispensable guide that features hands-on advice and concrete examples of classroom practice, including curriculum-making, building relationships with students and parents, fostering an effective learning environment and teaching toward freedom.
