Tales Out of School by Sloan

Book Description

Glenna Davis Sloan has seen and done it all in education, and her book shows, by example, why sensitive and compassionate teaching is just as crucial as ever in making the schoolroom a safe, inviting place for learners of all ages. Whether you read her crisp, delicious vignettes in bits and snatches or devour them all at once, Sloan's stories, from both sides of the teacher's desk, acknowledge and celebrate your professionalism and reverberate with vital lessons that any education professional can apply to his or her work right away. Sometimes poignant, sometimes playful, sometimes triumphant, and always heartfelt, "Tales Out of School" covers more than sixty years and spans the geographic and philosophical boundaries of twentieth and twenty-first century education. From a desolate one-room schoolhouse to the energizing halls of Columbia's Teachers College; from the suppression and humiliation of teachers who belittled women and regularly employed corporal punishment to the resonant passion and pride that helped her grow into a pioneer of child-centered practice, Sloan's memoir demonstrates not only how her commitment to educational excellence changed her life and those of thousands of children across the country but how you can do the same for your students. "Tales Out of School" is a book for anyone interested in education, including policy-makers and parents, and it's ideal for new and preservice teachers who want to know what it takes to be a gifted teacher, veteran teachers looking for a mentor's inspiration, and administrators who want to share the wisdom of a respected leader who has been an active participant in the ever-changing professional landscape. Let Glenna Davis Sloan take you through a lifetime of dedicated teaching and learning; read "Tales Out of School" and find out why one woman's passion for education means so much to your future practice.
