Provocations: The Story of Mrs. M.
Rouse, John
Offering glimpses into an English teacher's unorthodox teaching style, this book presents the story of one woman's dedication to her energetic, unruly students and challenges teachers to find their own unique genius within personal and institutional limitations. The book discusses how the teacher (who has spent her entire career at one school) uses a mix of humor, tales from her Native American heritage, and innocently offhand questions to startle her students and colleagues alike into responding personally to the confusing, sometimes dangerous, urban world in which they live. Chapters in the book are: (1) Eager to Be Known; (2) To Have the Name of Action; (3) The Economy of Attention; (4) When Time Is Broke; (5) The Concealments of Style; and (6) Missing in September.
