From the Best Selling Author of "The Courage to Teach" comes a New Resource for Reflection and Renewal

This guide will help teachers, individually and in groups, reflect on their teaching and renew their sense of vocation by exploring the "inner landscape" of their lives along Palmer's three dimensions—intellectual, emotional, and spiritual.

Synopsis:

Written to accompany the best-selling book The Courage to Teach, this study guide provides the tools that enable teachers to reflect upon key issues raised in the book and apply their learnings to their own teaching practice.

Parker Palmer's book, The Courage to Teach, takes the reader on a journey to explore the inner landscape of a teacher's life: the intellectual, the emotional, and the spiritual dimensions. This study guide will help teachers — both individually and in groups — reflect upon their own teaching practice and vocation from the vantage point of all three dimensions. Palmer's guide for reflection raises questions, explores avenues of thought, and introduces issues not contained, but springing forth from, the teachings and insights contained in The Courage to Teach.
