Teaching as an Offensive Lineman
Emmett, Joshua
Clearing House: A Journal of Educational Strategies, Issues and Ideas, v86 n4 p155-156 2013
This essay seeks to establish a metaphor of the professional practice of teaching to the attributes and training of an offensive lineman in the game of American football. Effective classroom instruction does not rely exclusively on a rare set of talents but rather rests on the commitment to the work of teaching. Like the position of offensive lineman, the profession of teaching is one of service. And more, it is one in which the person's performance can blossom through intense determination. An invitation is offered to serve as an effective teacher.
