To Teach is the now-classic story of one teacher's odyssey into the ethical and intellectual heart of teaching. For almost two decades, it has inspired teachers across the country to follow their own paths, face their own challenges, and become the teachers they long to be. This new third edition is especially vital reading amidst today's public policy debates and school reform initiatives that stress the importance of "good teaching."

To help bring this popular story to a new generation of teachers, Teachers College Press is publishing an exciting companion volume, To Teach: The Journey, in Comics. In this graphic novel, Ayers and talented young artist Ryan Alexander-Tanner bring the celebrated memoir to life. Paired with the new graphic novel, the third edition of To Teach offers a unique teaching and learning experience that broadens and deepens our understanding of what teaching can be. Together, these resources will capture the imaginations of teachers who are ready to follow their own Yellow Brick Roads.

This modern classic is a stunningly beautiful, insightful journey alongside a passionate elementary teacher who's all about teaching the curriculum in meaningful ways. Bill Ayers lives and breathes a common core of how children learn and how knowledge in one subject connects meaningfully and powerfully to other subject areas. This book has been hugely influential in teacher education in the United States for many years, and it should enjoy a richly-deserved rediscovery among the newest generation of teachers and teacher educators.
