Most widely held works by Frances Schoonmaker
Carl Sandburg by Carl Sandburg( Book )
4 editions published between 1995 and 2008 in English and held by 1,435 libraries worldwide
Presents a collection of poems by the beloved American author who, as a young man, travelled across the Midwest as a hobo. The surrealistic illustrations, which appear to be rendered in pastels, are appealing; the soft edges and warm tones work well with Sandburg's imaginary. The full-color illustrations are nothing short of breathtaking. Displays the range of everyday topics in which Sandburg found beauty, humor, or pathos. Unfamiliar words are helpfully defined in footnotes, and an introductory biographical essay establishes a context for the poems. Arcella makes a grand debut; his intensely colored sculptural forms, carved from dramatic shadows, have a distinctly '30s look to them

Teacher renewal : professional issues, personal choices by Frances Schoonmaker( Book )
6 editions published between 1986 and 1987 in English and held by 589 libraries worldwide
The 16 essays in this book assesss the problems inherent in the role of the teacher and offer perspectives on issues affecting life in the classroom. The three chapters in part one, "The Teacher and Teaching as a Vocation," are addressed to improving the teacher by attending to the inner needs of the individual. Teachers are seen as persons in search of meaning who choose to teach mostly for intrinsic, personal reasons. Part two, "The Teacher and Public Policy Issues," is comprised of three essays that demonstrate how the dilemmas of educational policy occur for teachers in terms of both theory and practice. The third part, "The Teacher and the Curriculum," considers teachers holistically, as human beings with overlapping realities, with social, cultural, and personal biographies. In the final part, "The Teacher and Personal Choice," four essays provide teachers with an opportunity to reflect and renew their commitment to teaching as a vocation. (Jd)
