Conversations with Great Teachers
What do exceptional teachers have in common and how they differ from each other. Bill Smoot, author of the fascinating new book, Conversations with Great Teachers, examines what he refers to as “that lingering touch which becomes the miracle of teaching.”
Through a series of engaging interviews (fifty-one in all), Smoot introduces us to an eclectic group of teachers who have great stories behind their work. There are classroom teachers and university professors but also teachers in more unconventional, nontraditional settings: teachers of plumbers, an exotic dance teacher, an alligator wrestling instructor and a world-renown farrier (horseshoe maker, blacksmith), even a female carpentry teacher.
