Teaching: A Performing Art.
Dawe, Harry A.
Phi Delta Kappan, v65 n8 p548-52 Apr 1984
Teaching should be thought of not as a science but as a performing art. Teachers should learn their craft through classroom apprenticeships in teaching studios/schools under the supervision of master teachers coupled with the study of pedagogical theory. Rewards should correspond to the quality of performance. (JBM)
