To go on this journey with Parker Palmer into the uncharted territory of 'the self' in teaching is not only to experience the joy of viewing teaching from a thrilling new perspective. It is also to be in the presence of a great teacher who, by sharing himself so openly and honestly, engages us in the very kind of teaching he so eloquently describes.-Russell Edgerton, director of educational programs, Pew Charitable Trusts, and past president, American Association for Higher Education A profoundly moving, utterly passionate, and inspired articulation of the call to, and the pain and joy of, teaching. It is must reading for any and every teacher, at any level. -Jon Kabat-Zinn, author, Wherever You Go, There You Are, and coauthor, Everyday Blessings Parker Palmer has taught me more about learning and teaching than anyone else. The Courage to Teach is for all of us-leaders, public officials, counselors, as well as teachers. It compassionately and insistently asks us to recognize that our capacity to do good work springs from our recognition of who we are. -Margaret J. Wheatley, author, Leadership and the New Science, and coauthor, A Simpler Way In The Courage to Teach, Parker J. Palmer takes teachers on an inner journey toward reconnecting with their vocation and their students. A Guide for Reflection and Renewal is a study guide that will help teachers, individually and in groups, reflect on their teaching and renew their sense of vocation by exploring the "inner landscape" of their lives along three dimensions-intellectual, emotional, and spiritual. The guide raises questions, examines ideas and images, and suggests practices that emerge from the many insights in The Courage to Teach. Teaching from the Heart is an inspiring documentary that follows one hundred K-12 teachers as they take part in the two-year "Courage to Teach" program. Gain valuable insight as you follow them through a sequence of seasonal retreats where they explore their gifts, their needs, their pains and joys, and move closer to the intersection of "soul" and "role" in their work as teachers.
