    For Educators Who Really Want To Teach

    Those who seek to teach to change lives will welcome this enlarged second edition of Professor Dale L. Brubaker's book. The current dehumanizing political climate pressures educators to improve the test scores of students. With this book, educators will be able to focus on Brubaker's 'inner curriculum' or worldview. Each chapter ends with real-life cases, making the concepts come alive. This book is a must for all educators who want to move beyond often static written curriculums.
