To Teach: The Journey of a Teacher: 4 out of 5 stars based on 1 user reviews.

Summary

To Teach is the now-classic story of one teacher's odyssey into the ethical and intellectual heart of teaching. For almost two decades, it has inspired teachers across the country to follow their own path, face their own challenges, and become the teachers they long to be. Since the second edition, there have been dramatic shifts to the educational landscape including the rise and fall of NCLB.

This new Third Edition is essential reading amidst today's public policy debates and school reform initiatives that stress the importance of ''good teaching.'' To help bring this popular story to a new generation of teachers, Teachers College Press is publishing an exciting companion volume: To Teach: The Journey, in Comics. In this graphic novel, Ayers and talented young artist Ryan Alexander-Tanner bring the celebrated memoir to life.

The Third Edition of To Teach, paired with the new graphic novel, offers a unique teaching and learning experience that broadens and deepens our understanding of what teaching can be. Together, these resources will capture the imaginations of pre- and in-service teachers who are ready to follow their own Yellow Brick Roads.

Author Biography

William Ayers is a school reform activist and Distinguished Professor and Senior University Scholar at the University of Illinois at Chicago.
