Teaching in Pursuit of Wow! Two Decades of Musings on Maximizing Learning Potential
- Focusing on the essentials
- The magic of learning, the magic of teaching
a fascinating collection… Teachers and teacher trainers will love it—Maneula Cohen, Switzerland
Teacher's resources can often be quite mechanistic—descriptions of a field or of classroom processes and the like. All very useful. But sometimes it's good to draw back and consider the big picture and ask the big questions. In the essays in Teaching in Pursuit of Wow!, Tim Murphey does this again and again. In terms of interaction, in terms of identity, how do we get students and teachers to plug in to the wow! of learning? For those in the classroom or for those with thoughts of being in the classroom.
