Author: Marni Gillard
Publisher: Stenhouse Pub
Marni Gillard has told stories to preschoolers, middle schoolers, and college students, and elicited their tales in return. She's heard triumph and trauma tales from prison inmates, senior citizens, and both preservice and veteran teachers. She's witnessed repeatedly that we teach ourselves how to live by telling our stories. In this book she shares the lessons she's learned about child-centered teaching and telling. Storyteller, Storyteacher includes: The important difference between reading aloud and storytelling. How children can learn from the natural storytellers in their lives. How to retrieve early memories. How to choose the "right" story to tell. Strategies and reasons for the use of visualization. A perspective on performance anxiety and reluctant tellers. How less-competent readers and writers find a safe and success-strewn path to literacy through oracy. How oral stories help build community from the first day of school. His book speaks to the soul of the experienced but often weary teacher and shines a light of encouragement on the path before the beginning teacher. It honors the important work of parenting and of listening to children in and out of school. It invites us all to look to our stories for lessons about educating our children and ourselves.

This book is a celebration of an extraordinary storyteller and, like all books, it needed a title. Brother Blue is a master of the spoken word, shaping it improvisationally into rhymes and rhythms as a jazz musician bends notes. Blue has birthed a thousand phrases, each uniquely his own. yet when we sought a title for this book, there was only one really possibility: Ahhhh, Blue's wordless exhalation of awe and wonder--an assertion of the ineffable.

Super teachers, step aside. There's a lesson here: It's okay to fail! We've heard enough about your successful teaching-your workshops that run like Cuisenarts, your students who listen with empathy and respond with insight, your conferences with parents and principals which end with hosannas and hugs. You're too perfect. Welcome to the world of Oops, where things can-and do-go from bad to worse in the classroom. If you've ever had an awful day (or week or month or year) as a teacher, you will enjoy the essays in Oops.These are stories of failure from over forty-five new and veteran teachers in every field, stories that will resonate with every teacher who took a risk and blew it. Some failures are embarrassing: the male high school students in grass skirts surprising the class with a dance illustrating their notions of a jungle tribe . . .Some stories make you cringe: the disruptive college student who tries to lead the class in a spontaneous prayer....Others will remind you of your own lapses: a class of second graders arrives for the field trip with parent chaperones, picnic lunches, and maps, but you forgot to order the bus... And, because this is a book about the realities of teaching, you will see how others have learned the hard way about some of the intractable problems in education and society, for the issues of race, economics, undersupplied classrooms, and mind-numbing bureaucracy are all here. There is sparkling humor and genuine pain in these stories of teachers who care deeply about their students and still make mistakes. Every failure matters, and often hurts. But ultimately, many teachers have learned the most about the art of teaching when their teaching fails. As contributors like James Beane, Glenda Bissex, Leila Christenbury, Jerry Harste, Donald Murray, Susan Ohanian, Patrick Shannon, and Kathy Short demonstrate, even the profession's gurus struggle with disaster. As educators we should write about, talk about, and think about failure more. The essays in Oops acknowledge the gaps between our theory and practice, between our dreams of what we might be as teachers and who we are.
