A 156-page book (from veteran English chair Robert Eidelberg and Binder Books / Books With a Built-in Teacher) about answering the call to become a teacher and then learning how to be a truly effective one (whatever your subject area). With extended "mentor commentaries" for prospective, first-, and second-year secondary school teachers on the classroom philosophies, personas, practices and experiences of 23 fictional teachers from 19 contemporary and classic works of literature.
The "choice to highlight fictional teachers' instructional methods and strategies is rather unique and informative" writes New York City's current and progressive Chancellor of Education Carmen Farina.
SO YOU THINK YOU MIGHT LIKE TO TEACH also includes contributions from mentored teachers about "for real!" connections between their personal and professional lives and the lives of the fictional teachers featured in in the book.
