Sintesi dell'editore

This book builds on a simple premise: good teaching cannot be reduced to technique but is rooted in the identity and integrity of the teacher. Good teaching takes myriad forms but good teachers share one trait: they are authentically present in the classroom, in community with their students and their subject. They possess "a capacity for connectedness" and are able to weave a complex web of connections between themselves, their subjects, and their students, helping their students weave a world for themselves. Connections made by good teachers are held not in their methods but in their hearts - the place where intellect, emotion, spirit, and will converge in the human self - when we choose to live authentic lives.

"A profoundly moving, utterly passionate, and inspired articulation of the call to, and the pain and joy of, teaching. It is must reading for any and every teacher, at any level." (Jon Kabat-Zinn, author of Wherever You Go, There You Are)
"Evokes the heart of what teachers really do, and does so in a vivid, compelling, and soulful way." (Robert Coles, Harvard University)

Great content. Annoying performance

Is there anything you would change about this book?

I loved the content of this book. It was informative and motivational. For me, it was required reading for a graduate course in leadership. It contained profound concepts about how to see yourself as an education and leader. The audience should not be limited to teachers or those who work in education. The audio version of this was problematic, however because I felt, quite often, like the playback was just a bit too slow. The reader who voiced the audio version has a very deep voice and speaks just a little too slowly. It lulled me into sleep quite a few times, and I strongly believe it was the performance, not the content. I could read the text in the book and remain quite engaged.

Would you be willing to try another one of Stefan Rudnicki’s performances?

No. Probably not.

Informative and Reflective

If you could sum up The Courage to Teach in three words, what would they be?

Encouraging, Uplifting, and Connecting

What was one of the most memorable moments of The Courage to Teach?

Everyone has the "horror student" moments. Parker Palmer's "horror student" story was shared in a particularly heartfelt and honest way.

Which character – as performed by Stefan Rudnicki – was your favorite?

Entire story told in a clear and comforting tone and pace.

Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

The overall idea that art of teaching starts within.
This is what I need to keep reminding myself of when I am particularly challenged by students, parents, colleagues or administration.

Food for Thought

I enjoyed this book. Palmer has lots of ideas and the book is kind of a reflective work on his career. The book ends with a call to action but fortunately it is relatively short. I like most of his ideas and will listen to this book again. Palmer gives a lot of food for thought and is easy to listen to, excellent narration.

When Ambien Fails…

…try this book! I am a teacher with 20+ years of experience (so it’s a topic I’m interested in), a type-A personality (so I’m always trying to improve my craft), and a severe OCD sufferer (who suffers anxiety when leaving tasks unfinished). Even I, after diligently listening to this audiobook during my commute for weeks, finally experienced a catharsis in the drive-thru lane at Chick-Fil-A, shouting, “No more! I cannot do it!” and literally yanked the USB cable out of the dashboard.
The complex writing style—metaphors within similes and sentences so long you forget how they started by the time they end—read in a voice so monotonous I wonder if it is read by a text-to-speech program has the effect of a homeopathic hypnotic. The “story” lacks information and energy, giving the impression this author hears one sentence from a student and spends the next three days on a chaise lounge in an office somewhere, reflecting deeply on that one sentence and analyzing it for some hint of hidden meaning, finding he and only he stands between that student’s success in life and a lifetime of Dickens-esq poverty and misery.
Yes, every other critic and reviewer thinks this book is fantastic and life-changing, so I’m probably intellectually inferior and too simple to understand the great truth buried within its covers, but I’ll take up that mantle and simply end with this: this is a boring AF book with little value for a classroom teacher, read by a robot.

dry and self absorbed

narrator was not bad but the author was staring the obvious as though it were a revelation

A must for new educators!

Where does The Courage to Teach rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

This was one of few audio books I have ever owned, however it has really set the bar quit high. I feel as though the narrator was not quite what I expected, but this did not hamper my ability to draw from the text's content.

Who was your favorite character and why?

No characters pre-say but the content and concepts were very helpful as a novice educator.

Have you listened to any of Stefan Rudnicki’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

No I have not. His voice did not seem to fit as well as I would have liked it to.

Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

I was fascinated by how personal the author made teaching and how this transcended into the bigger picture of the education system. I was very please with the book as a whole and look forward to referencing it in the future.

Good Motivator

What made the experience of listening to The Courage to Teach the most enjoyable?

It was enjoyable to listen to a persons personal journey or exploration in what it means to teach. It was great to see that the author was able to define teaching for herself and find personal satisfaction.

How would you have changed the story to make it more enjoyable?

The information was fine the way it was presented. Perhaps give ideas on how one can make teaching meaningful to themselves.

Which scene was your favorite?

not applicable

If you were to make a film of this book, what would be the tag line be?

Finding your purpose

Any additional comments?

Good listen for everyone and especially educators at all levels of education, both new and veteran.

Powerful and Practical

This book was a breath of fresh air as it legitimized the value of the inner life as the springboard for all that we do, not only as educators but as people in general.

Transformational, not technical

Explores in depth the teacher and student psyche, and how to reach the heart to effect real change. Super useful not just for conventional teachers, but also for anyone interested in fulfilling the great commission.

Graceful Genius

Parker speaks with the quiet confidence earned through long experience. Every word rings true. A powerful call to make a bigger difference by becoming a better teacher.

Courage to listen!

An excessive - overly wordy book - the author apparently took 10 years to write this book writing and rewriting - smacks me of an intellectual academic trying to impress over indulging in word play. Just get to the point - got to chapter 2 and have to leave it where it is to hard to find the kernel of knowledge he is trying to impart.

Interesting though it went over my head a little.

Where does The Courage to Teach rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

Somewhere in the middle, neither great, nor awful.

What other book might you compare The Courage to Teach to, and why?

Partly the 2 books I read about standards and accountability and partly time Out for Teachers and there's room For Me Here. It had enough case studies like those 2 books, but talked about methods of teaching a bit like the books on standards and accountability.

What does Stefan Rudnicki bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you had only read the book?

I don't know as I didn't have any choice but to listen to it.

Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

NoMaybe the bit about the "student from hell" but I'm not sure if anything else did.

Any additional comments?

I'm not a teacher so maybe I shouldn't be surprised that some of this book drifted over my head somewhat. still, it had enough interest to keep me going.
