About This Book
Teaching and Joy is a collection of inspiring stories by people who share a vision of schools, families, and communities where human beings experience joyful learning. Editors Robert Sornson and James Scott bring together a multitude of perspectives that show how joyous both the learning experience and the teaching experience can be.
Each author offers a brief, personal story that emphasizes active learning; respect for differences; creativity; willingness to make mistakes; a love of life, school, and family relationships; and the quest for personal meaning. Collectively, the stories reinforce the perspective that great learning and great teaching can occur only in an atmosphere of love, clear purpose, and commitment.
