Teaching Is . . .
Harmin, Merrill; Gregory, Tom
This book is an orientation to teaching designed to help establish a comfortable self-image and to develop appropriate skills. Readings and experiences are presented in the five-part text to aid in this orientation process. Part 1 discusses forming a group that functions as a support system, a human experience resource, and a source of feedback when using this book. Part 2 discusses becoming a learner, and part 3 discusses different teaching styles. Part 4 presents experiences involving people and things that hurt and help in teaching. Part 5 presents experiences that relate to decision making in teaching. Part 6, entitled "Next Steps," presents some concluding readings in an attempt to wrap up loose ends. A bibliography and appendixes consisting of a rating form, an education directory, and samples of application forms, contracts, and evaluation forms are included. (PD)
