Spreading the Word: The Art of Writing About Teaching by Mark Statman

In this article, Mark Statman examines a variety of teaching texts.  He writes, “When I consider the art of writing about teaching, I have to acknowledge that the books that have influenced me most as a teacher have been those that have influenced me most as a writer. That is to say, the books are less about describing a series of imitable lessons and more about engaging the reader in creative and meaningful ways.” Books discussed include Kenneth Koch’s  Rose, Where Did You Get That Red?, Herbert Kohl’s 36 ChildrenThe Art of the Personal Essay edited by Phillip Lopate, Sylvia Ashton-Warner’s Teacher, and Third Mind edited by Tonya Foster and Kristin Prevallet.
