The Inspiring Teacher: New Beginnings for the 21st Century. The Inspired Classroom Series.
Sullo, Robert A.
This book provides educators with information on how to become an inspiring teacher. Nine chapters look at: (1) "The Qualities of an Inspiring Teacher" (e.g., passion for learning, lifelong learners, and actions match words); (2) "Choice Theory" (genetic instructions affecting behavior, the quality world, and perception); (3) "Brain-Based Learning" (e.g., brain information for the nonspecialist, memory, and multiple intelligences); (4) "Developmental Issues" (e.g., theory of human development, stages of moral reasoning, and gender and gender bias); (5) "Inspiring Your Students" (e.g., building the classroom community, the first day of school, and working with a purpose); (6) "Inspiring Your Colleagues" (e.g., walk the talk, preserving individual style, and making connections beyond the building); (7) "Forging an Alliance with Parents" (e.g., intimidation, fear, condescending behaviors, and parent experts in the classroom); (8) "Conflict Management" (achieving a win/win result and when conflict resolution is not an option); and (9) "Time Management" (e.g., student evaluation, teacher as facilitator, and effective use of paraprofessionals). (Contains 45 bibliographic references.) (SM)
