Palmer's book is concerned with truth- whatever the subject. Palmer's classroom is not an expert filling the minds of passive students, but a community of learners, including the instructor, committed to truth in its broadest sense. His definition of truth as revealed in community is grounded in the Christian faith, but his notions of sprituality are not exclusionary. This book is not a 'how to' of tactics, strategies, or the latest educational theory. It is about creating an environment that fosters learning and supports community. Palmer doesn't promise the effort will be easy or pain-free, but he does assure us it will be worthwhile. This book is recommended for any teacher who has forgotten why they went into the profession.Was this review helpful? Yes NoThank you for your feedback.
