Teaching and the Balancing of Round Stones.
Duffy, Gerald G.
Phi Delta Kappan, v79 n10 p777-80 Jun 1998
The best teachers succeed in developing student creativity while maintaining orderly classrooms, being taskmasters liked by their students, balancing expectations and frustrations, and helping students develop skills in real-life learning situations. Resolving such teaching dilemmas is like balancing round stones. Classroom life requires thoughtful adaptation, not technical compliance. Teacher development implications are discussed. (MLH)
