In this book, Sam M. Intrator analyzes powerful learning moments in a high school classroom. He offers five detailed case study portraits of these experiences, describing in each case how the teacher shaped the culture of the class, made critical pedagogical decisions, and connected students to the subject matter. He confirms that teachers can set the stage to encourage more magical learning moments and suggests numerous practical ideas to help them do so.

From the Inside Flap:

"Great teachers, like Sam Intrator, know what matters most in the classroom. They connect, care, conspire with students; they listen, laugh, and love them into learning. With this terrific book, we can too." - Rick Jackson, co-director, Center for Teacher Formation

"If you seek faith and hope, I invite you to spend a day here with Mr. Quinn, a master teacher, and Sam Intrator, a master writer." - Marianne Novak Houston, facilitator, International Courage to Teach Program

"In this beautifully written book Sam Intrator lets us in to the detailed workings of the teaching/learning relationship at its best." - Denise Clark Pope, author of Doing School: How We Are Creating a Generation of Stressed Out, Materialistic, and Miseducated Students

"Sam Intrator is one of the brightest lights in education today. His excellence as a teacher, his commitment to our public schools, his passion for the well-being of the young and those who teach them, his remarkable way with words, and his unwavering integrity mark him as a key leader in the rising generation of scholar-activists who can help bring meaning and purpose back to education. But do not take my word on this. Find out for yourself by reading this lively, compelling, wise, and truly extraordinary book." - Parker J. Palmer, author of The Courage to Teach and Let Your Life Speak

"Intrator is both thoughtful and articulate in this study of educationally vital moments. His book is engaging, intriguing, and inspiring." - Robert W. Roeser, Stanford University
