Editor's Choice: Community, Caring, and Transcendence--Developing Spirit To Improve Learning.
Smith, Myrna J.
Community College Review, v28 n3 p57-74 Win 2000
Identifies and defines the notions of caring, community, and transcendence as antidotes to alienation, isolation, and fear--the three common experiences of students that tend to distort rather than nourish true learning. Describes the teaching styles of three college teachers working against alienation by caring for their students, forming communities in their classroom, and elevating subject matter beyond the mundane.
