New Book - "In Teaching What You Don't Know"
Wednesday, October 28, 2009 (Around 5 years ago)
New in the library: In Teaching What You Don’t Know (Harvard UP 2009) Therese Huston addresses an issue that is rarely addressed - the frequent situations in which teachers have to depart from their areas of expertise to teach a course on a topic they know, but not in depth. It includes strategies for preparing for a new course, teaching tips, and advice for administrators and chairs. Written in an informal and highly accessible style, this book may be helpful for those who find themselves teaching material that is new - either because the field has changed, they’re teaching a survey course for the first time, or because they’re trying something new in an FTS or J-term. This book is being processed in the library and should be on the new books shelf soon. You can read a sample at Google Books
