Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

What is it really like to be a college professor in an American classroom today? An award-winning teacher with over twenty years of experience answers this question by offering an enlightening and entertaining behind-the-scenes view of a typical semester in his American history course. The unique result--part diary, part sustained reflection--recreates both the unstudied realities and intensely satisfying challenges that teachers encounter in university lecture halls.From the initial selection of reading materials through the assignment of final grades to each student, Patrick Allitt reports with keen insight and humor on the rewards and frustrations of teaching students who often are unable to draw a distinction between the words novel and book. Readers get to know members of the class, many of whom thrive while others struggle with assignments, plead for better grades, and weep over failures. Although Allitt finds much to admire in today's students, he laments their frequent lack of preparedness--students who arrive in his classroom without basic writing skills, unpracticed with reading assignments.With sharp wit, a critical eye, and steady sympathy for both educators and students, I'm the Teacher, You're the Student examines issues both large and small, from the ethics of student-teacher relationships to how best to evaluate class participation and grade writing assignments. It offers invaluable guidance to those concerned with the state of higher education today, to young faculty facing the classroom for the first time, and to parents whose children are heading off to college.

Synopsis:

In this trenchant and often hilarious guide, Patrick Allitt takes the reader along to his course in American history, offering a teacher's-eye view of the undergraduate classroom. The book offers background and guidance to those concerned with the state of higher education today, from educators to general readers, from young faculty facing the classroom for the first time to parents whose children are heading off to college. "Charming, and compelling."--
