Abstract:

Jackson argues that teaching must be taken seriously not only by its practitioners but by the public. He emphasizes the complexity of the craft as embodied in the dominant outlooks on educational thought and practice: the "mimetic" and the "transformative." He discusses five critical issues: knowing how to teach, the uncertainties of teaching, real teaching, the future of teaching, and alternative outlooks on teaching. He also examines William James' theories on teachers and teaching; standard definitions of teaching; and the two dominant outlooks on educational thought and practice--the liberal and the "conservative." ISBN 0-8077-2810-1 (pbk.) : $9.95.
