Teacher Self may be the most valuable and enriching book about teaching ever written. Based on Temple University's acclaimed course, 'The Art and Science of Teaching,' Allender draws the student-teacher into a series of narratives that develop as scenes from a play. As the drama unfolds, the reader becomes part of a classroom where the teacher's strategy shifts from speaking to listening and where students teach and the teacher learns. The book demonstrates how to create a vital, lively, learning environment in which everyone involved can expect to be interactive, spontaneous, and effective. The book's immediacy, power, and clarity offer a rich model for teaching that your students will remember and emulate for years. A mix of theory and stories, Teacher Self is a book about the practical side of humanistic education.

About the Author:

Jerome S. Allender is professor emeritus of education at Temple University.

Review:

This is an extraordinary book about preparing to become a teacher. Unlike ordinary methods texts, Teacher Self focuses on the continuous process of becoming, as one teacher educator and his students explore the relationships among self, others, and pedagogical theories and practices. The power of these intertwined and recursive conversations among Allender and his students is that we too are compelled to examine constructions of our current and future teacher selves. (Janet L. Miller, Teachers College, Columbia University)

Allender addresses teacher educators and teachers, with emphasis on the rich challenges of teacher learning as the essential feature of education. These narratives incorporate the personal, the emotional, and the intellectual commonplaces of teacher learning. The book captures the commitment, passion, and power of effective teaching and speaks to the complex and rich world facing students and teachers alike. (Lee and Judy Shulman)

This book explores the dimensions of humanistic education through dialogues on classroom teaching and the teacher-student interaction. A series of encounters and reflections lead to a summary chapter titled 'Gestalt Theory for Teachers.' This book explores the important issues involved in transforming reflective practice from unreflected sloganeering to operational behavior. (Design Research News)

For those who were not fortunate enough to share a semester in the classroom with a master humanistic educator, Temple University Professor of Education Emeritus Jerome S. Allender has collaborated with some of his students and colleagues to create a delightful book providing an insider's look at the learning process. Learning-focused. The stories and ideas captured within Teacher Self show a humanistic education that is very much alive and well and setting alight new generations of teachers. (Perspectives)

A book full of stories about young Americans becoming teachers as they progress through college. Try it if you want a change from classroom management texts. (Times Literary Supplement)

Allender paints an inspiring picture of what education can be. . . . A book full of ideas that can inspire everyone who's heart is with education and students. (Fred Korthagen, Utrecht University, The Netherlands)

With relevant references and useful index, this book provides a creative exploration of the art and science of pedagogy for teachers and teachers in training. (CHOICE)
