Book Club

Come join us to read and discuss “Teaching with Your Mouth Shut” by Donald L. Finkel (followed by a book of the Club's choice).

The Club will meet on Mondays from 4:00 p.m.–5:30 p.m. in Room 509.

 

About the book from Amazon.com:

Our traditional "Great Teacher" teaches by telling, inspiring students through eloquent, passionate oration. For Donald Finkel this view is destructively narrow: it takes for granted that teachers teach, fundamentally and centrally, by telling students what they are supposed to know. In Teaching with Your Mouth Shut, Finkel proposes an alternative vision of teaching - one that is deeply democratic in its implications.

Each chapter in this book presents a case study, a story, or a sustained image of a teaching situation - a set of "circumstances" that produces significant learning in students. Each makes sense of the title of the book in a particular way. Each enriches its meaning by one increment. The idea of "teaching with your mouth shut" is explored, exemplified, and varied to such an extent that it ultimately specifies a comprehensible approach to teaching - along with a host of concrete teaching possibilities. In the end, not only will your notion of good teaching be transformed, but so too your sense of what may be signified by the word "teaching" itself.
