1. Two Professions
Gerald Grant is the Hannah Hammond Professor of Education and Sociology, Emeritus at Syracuse University. Christine Murray is Associate Professor of Education and Human Development at the State University of New York College at Brockport.
Gerald Grant and Christine Murray have interviewed and observed more than 500 teachers and spent a decade studying schools, colleges, and universities. The book that grew out of that research, Teaching in America describes a paradox made apparent by their work. Schoolteachers and professors do the same fundamental work--teaching students--yet the respect, compensation, and working conditions of schoolteachers often fall short of those traditionally accorded to professors...Those separate histories have created misleading images of each profession, [<auhtor>Grant] adds: To see professors as bookish scholars is as much of a distortion as to see schoolteachers as little more than baby sitters. -- Julianne Basinger Chronicle of Higher Education Teaching in America is an engaging book. For the reader who is or has been an educator in the schools, the historical narratives and the contemporary issues ring true. But the book lends itself to a much wider audience that includes all those interested in our schools and in education who want to understand the complexities of where we are and how we got there by listening to the voices of teachers in a relatively jargon-free story. -- June K. Phillips College Board Review Readers concerned with the condition of public schools and the status of schoolteachers will find that Grant and Murray not only provide them with solid ammunition for debate but also give them reason to keep up their spirits. Publishers Weekly By sharing the thoughts of famous teachers and some ordinary ones too, [Gerald Grant and Christine Murray] thoughtfully review the teaching profession. Their in-depth focus on recent experiments that give teachers the power to shape their schools and mentor new recruits to teaching is insightful. Grant and Murray conclude that the educational system will be saved not by better managers but by better teachers. These new teachers' talents and skills must be developed and their teaching performance assessed through better means and the involvement of other teachers. -- G. E. Pawlas Choice Grant and Murray base their work on years of research in grade schools, high schools, and higher education institutions. They address the positive aspects of teaching and explore questions dealing with the empowerment of U.S. schoolteachers. The authors argue that teaching is a multi-skilled activity that involves knowing the learners, engaging and motivating the students, imparting knowledge, modeling appropriate behavior, and evaluating student progress...Teachers, parents, and those preparing themselves for teaching as a vocation will be inspired by this true analysis of their profession. Recommended for all libraries. -- Samuel T. Huang Library Journal Teaching in America not only poses many questions about the state of education in the next generation--How will teachers think about themselves and their profession? Will teachers be able to meet the nation's changing educational goals? How will a new generation of creative, talented people be drawn into the field of education?--but also provides the information and inspiration needed in the search for answers to those questions. -- Zolton Bedy Syracuse Record
