Teaching with the Beginner's Mind: Notes from My Karate Journal.
Fontaine, Sheryl I.
College Composition and Communication, v54 n2 p208-21 Dec 2002
Reflects on what the author has learned about university teaching from her experience being a novice student of karate. Asserts the value for even seasoned teachers to maintain a beginner's mind that is "free of the habits of the expert, ready to accept, to doubt, and to open to all the possibilities." Concludes that from this new position, her awareness of what she does in the classroom has shifted. (SG)
