Abstract "Exploring the inner landscape of a teacher's life is difficult to do alone or without guidance for reflecting on what The Courage to Teach means to the reader. This guide is a welcome resource for those who wish to extend their exploration beyond just reading the book, individually or within a study group. Includes online video content featuring an interview with Parker Palmer discussing the crisis in education, the heart of a teacher, ways of knowing, the importance of relationship in teaching and learning, teacher renewal, and spirituality in education"-- Provided by publisher.
