Teachers and Mentors: Profiles of Distinguished Twentieth-Century Professors of Education.
Kridel, Craig, Ed.; And Others
This volume contains 22 original essays describing important professors of education and focusing on how their teaching and mentoring inspired and influenced the essays' authors. Following a foreword by Ernest L. Boyer that reflects on the role of teaching in scholarship and the continuity of knowledge, the essays are grouped in four parts under six general themes: teaching expectations; professing and social responsibility; modeling the passion to understand; extending an invitation; mutuality, dignity and generosity of spirit; and civility. The essays are: (1) "Charles Hubbard Judd: As I Came To Know Him" (Ralph W. Tyler); (2) "Lessons Learned from Ralph W. Tyler" (David R. Krathwohl); (3) "Benjamin Bloom, Values and the Professoriate" (Lorin W. Anderson); (4) "Hilda Taba: The Congruity of Professing and Doing" (Elizabeth Hall Brady); (5) "Boyd H.
