The Heart of Teaching is a book about teaching and learning in the performing arts. Its focus is on the inner dynamics of teaching: the processes by which teachers can promote--or undermine--creativity itself. It covers the many issues that teachers, directors and choreographers experience, from the frustrations of dealing with silent students and helping young artists 'unlearn' their inhibitions, to problems of resistance, judgment and race in the classroom,. Wangh raises questions about what can--and what cannot--be taught, and opens a discussion about the social, psychological and spiritual values that underlie the skills and techniques that teachers impart. Subjects addressed include: Question asking: which kinds of questions encourage creativity and which can subvert the learning process. Feedback: how it can foster both dependence and independence in students. Grading: its meaning and meaninglessness. Power relationships, transference and counter-transference The pivotal role of listening. The Heart of Teaching speaks to experienced teachers and beginning teachers in all disciplines, but is particularly relevant to those in the performing arts, from which most of its examples are drawn. It brings essential insight and honesty to the discussion of how to teach.

Teaching at Public School 1430 in New York City is where Cheryl Hulteen discovered and refined the heart of her teaching, "Prior to PS 1430 I taught the same way I had been taught. The teacher speaks to the students and they listen somewhat attentively. The teacher tells students to do something and for the most part they do it. In many classrooms I worked in before PS 1430, the teachers led the class in a "Good morning Ms. H" sing-song chant as greeting to me, the new teacher, the Resident Artist. None of those things happened at PS 1430. I had to... improvise." Hulteen shares how she improvised new, humorous and powerful ways of understanding what it meant to learn, teach and embrace change in an educational culture that often settled for much less. YES YES GOOD explores the poignantly compelling and emotional portraits of students and teachers who learn to: Say YES to their creativity and ideas. Say YES to the creativity and ideas of the people they work with.

The best writing from a lifetime in the trenches and at the typewriter, from the renowned and much-beloved National Book Award–winning educator. In more than forty books on subjects ranging from social justice to mathematics, morality to parenthood, Herb Kohl has earned a place as one of our foremost “educators who write.” With Marian Wright Edelman, Mike Rose, Lisa Delpit, and Vivian Paley among his fans, Kohl is “a singular figure in education,” as William Ayers says in his foreword, “it’s clear that Herb Kohl’s influence has resonated, echoed, and multiplied.” Now, for the first time, readers can find collected in one place key essays and excerpts spanning the whole of Kohl’s career, including practical as well as theoretical writings. Selections come from Kohl’s classic 36 Children, his National Book Award–winning The View from the Oak (co-authored with his wife Judy), and all his best-known and beloved books. The Herb Kohl Reader is destined to become a major new resource for old fans and a new generation of teachers and parents. “Kohl has created his own brand of teaching . . . [He is] a remarkable teacher who discovered in his first teaching assignment that in education he could keep playing with toys, didn’t have to stop learning, and could use what he knew in the service of others.” —Lisa Delpit, The New York Times “An infinitely vulnerable and honest human being who has made it his vocation to peddle hope.” —Jonathan Kozol
