Teachable Moments : Tales of Triumph and Lessons Gone Awry Paperback
Teachable Moments will look at various pieces of the vocation of what it means to be a teacher in our school buildings today - through all of the most impactful reforms on the fabric of American education.
As administrators, we see the push for the need to create data tables and pie charts in an attempt to make conclusions about improving instructional practices to encourage student performance.
Some things - many moments - cannot be quantified, however.
So, where do we begin? There is absolutely no singular starting point, but the experience of the teaching practitioner is vast, and goes far beyond that which can be measured numerically.
Our vocation, and its many ups and downs, often cannot be assigned a neat number.
This book will examine the ways in which school districts approach these educational changes, through the lens of the teacher.
From one-on-one teacher interactions with each other, to those memorable moments with students, this book will be a collection of rich essays that capture the experience of the newer teacher.
