Opening Minds: Why I Teach.
Welsh, Patrick
American Educator, v26 n3 p7-9 Fall 2002
A high school English teacher explains why after a long teaching career, he is still motivated to remain in the classroom, focusing on his use of literature to motivate students. This teacher believes that literature reveals more about humanity than theology, philosophy, psychology, or history ever can. He notes that it also teaches beauty and inspires students to analyze and debate important subjects. (SM)
