Burned in: Fueling the Fire to Teach
Friedman, Audrey A.; Reynolds, Luke
Teachers College Press
Almost half of new teachers leave the profession within their first year. New teachers need support, mentoring, encouragement, and, most importantly, hope in order to survive the challenges of their first years of teaching. "Burned In" features essays from today's most visionary educators, including Jim Burke, Peter Elbow, James Loewen, Gregory Michie, Sonia Nieto, Kirsten Olson, and Parker Palmer. Their personal stories will help fuel new and veteran educators' passion for teaching so they stay "burned in" instead of burning out. Readers will hear inspiring stories of veteran public school teachers, as well as powerful research findings about what teachers need to succeed in today's classrooms. Never before has a single volume brought together the experiences of so many renowned teachers, scholars, and bestselling authors. This book contains: (1) Teacher Orientation (Jim Burke); (2) Burn On, You Crazy Teacher! (But Where's That Damn Lighter?) (Michael Dunn); (3) Getting Burned (Andy Hargreaves); (4) Subject Love (Rosetta Marantz Cohen); (5) Practitioner Inquiry and the Messy Reality of Classroom Practice (Curt Dudley-Marling); (6) Burning Out in the Social Studies (James W. Loewen); (7) Re-Grounded (Sam Intrator); (8) Open Doors (Linda Nathan); (9) Ebb and Flow: Reflections on Teaching in the City (Gregory Michie); (10) The Believing Game (Peter Elbow); (11) Five Alive: Why Teaching Is So Compelling (Patricia A. Wasley); (12) Holding the Tension of Opposites (Parker Palmer); (13) The High School Teacher as Scholar? (Sam Scheer); (14) The World Becomes What You Teach: A Better World through Humane Education (Zoe Weil); (15) What, You Wanted an Easy Problem? (Kirsten Olson); (16) It's Not on the Test: A Search for Existential Meaning in Three Acts (Christopher L. Doyle); and (17) From Surviving to Thriving (Sonia Nieto). An introduction by Luke Reynolds is presented.
