Fred Stephenson’s ‘Extraordinary Teachers’ can help you develop your own teaching philosophy

In Monday’s class, we’ll talk about Fred Stephenson’s “Extraordinary Teachers: The Essence of Excellent Teaching” as a way of exploring teaching philosophies.

As part of your written preparation for our discussion, please read Stephenson’s opening section where he discusses qualities that make teachers extraordinary. Then read 10 of the teachers’ essays.

In writing three to four pages reacting to these materials, include a listing of three qualities that you would like students to use in describing you as a teacher.

For this written assignment, bring your reaction paper as a printed copy.
