The Courage to Teach Guide for Reflection and Renewal: 20th Anniversary Edition
(Jossey-Bass, 2017) by Parker J. Palmer with Megan Scribner
The Courage to Teach Guide for Reflection and Renewal has been thoroughly updated and expanded to help readers reflect on their teaching and renew their sense of vocation. The Guide proposes practical ways to create “safe space” for honest reflection and probing conversation, and offers chapter-by-chapter questions and exercises to explore the many insights in The Courage to Teach. Discussion questions related to the topics explored in the interview have been integrated into the Guide, giving individuals and study groups a chance to have “a conversation with the author” as well as an engagement with the text.
