Wellness Book Discussion Group
We are working on configuring our educator wellness book discussion group – it’s looking like we will be hosting this as an online book discussion. COMPLETELY FREE OF CHARGE
We will begin our conversation of the book Courage to Teach in August. So if you would like to join us – pick up a copy of Parker Palmer’s book, and email us at firstname.lastname@example.org to let us know you will be participating.
Palmer’s book, if you are not familiar with it, is designed to help teachers renew their zest for teaching, operating on the premise that good teaching comes from the identity and integrity of the teacher, rather than from technique alone.
This book is for teachers who have good days and bad – and whose bad days bring the suffering that comes only from something one loves. It is for teachers who refuse to harden their hearts, because they love learners, learning, and the teaching life.”
– Parker J. Palmer
The discussion will be set up with a weekly discussion prompt that you can respond to at any time during the week, with the ability to monitor and respond to other participants’ responses. This is intended to be a respectful place in which to discuss Parker’s ideas, and build community among educators. We hope you can join us!
