Publisher's Summary

Fearless Teaching is a stirring and audacious jaunt around the world that peeks - with the eyes of one of America's most seasoned educators - into places you will surely never see on your own. Some are disappearing. It is a bit like playing hooky from school. You will travel to the Swiss Alps, Korea, Navajo territory, an abandoned factory in Missouri, the Holy Land, the Great Rift Valley, the schools of Cuba, the ocean waves, and the human subconscious - oh, and Disneyland. There you will find colorful stories for the encouragement, inspiration, and courage needed by educators and parents. Fearless Teaching is not a fix-it book - it is more a way of seeing the world and the school so that you can stay in your work and focus on what matters most to you.

Critic Reviews

"Grauer begins each chapter with a question, proceeds to explore that question with a story about a school or an educational experience, and concludes, usually, with an observation or two about how the story could apply to American education. The storytelling framework and cross-cultural analysis make for vivid and, at times, poetic reading" (Publishers Weekly)
