Steering into the Curve: Getting Real in the Classroom
Uhl, Christopher
College Teaching, v58 n3 p105-108 Jul-Sep 2010
Dozens and dozens of little deaths occur in college classrooms each day as teachers, mostly because of fear, steer themselves and their students away from what is alive and real and toward what is dead, safe, and boring. In this paper, I use a collection of stories to describe a practice that enlivens classroom dynamics that I call "Steering Into the Curve."
