Davis, Sumara and Luce-Kapler’S Engaging Minds
As a beginning teacher, I come into the profession awash with ambiguities. How can I hope to teach my students to think for themselves? Is this even possible? What should I care about when I teach, if not assessments, grades and my own sanity? Aware of the fact that I don’t yet know what I stand for as a teacher and somewhat displaced between the theoretical underpinnings and a reality that seems worlds away by comparison, I will attempt here to gain some final traction on what I think it means to teach.
