How To Catch a Shark and Other Stories about Teaching and Learning.
Graves, Donald H.
This anthology of 32 autobiographical tales is based on both personal and professional experiences. The anthology's eclectic tales offer: recalled moments of childhood wonder; anecdotes about remarkable and not-so-remarkable students; lessons from the pulpit as well as the battlefield; and stories of painful loss, hilarious mishaps, and awesome epiphanies. Each tale teaches as it reveals the nature of human learning. The point of the tales is clear: the best way to be an effective, responsive teacher is for each individual to examine his or her learning histories. At the end of each story in the anthology is a practical exercise for reflection. (NKA)
