The Passionate Teacher By Robert L Fried I have just finished reading a wonderful book titled The Passionate Teacher written by Robert L Fried I was so inspired by this book that I decided I needed to write about it This book was written for both new teachers and teachers who have been in education for a long time Its one of those rare books that a reader can connect with on every page Some of the things discussed in this book include how to be a passionate teacher how the author sees the game of school developing a stance or philosophy of teaching the parents perspective and how to design a lesson plan that is full of passion According to the author students need to be engaged in the process of learning in ways that connect with their experience Students learn better when they know the teacher cares about them One saying came to mind while I was reading this book Students dont care how much you know until they know how much you care In the opening of the book the author says To be a passionate teacher is to be someone in love with a field of knowledge deeply stirred by issues and ideas that challenge our world drawn to the dilemmas and potentials of the young people who come into class each dayor captivated by all of these A passionate teacher is a teacher who breaks out of the isolation of a classroom who refuses to submit to apathy or cynicism I argue in these pages that only when teachers bring their passions about learning and about life into their daily work can they dispel the fog of passive compliance or active disinterest that surrounds so many students I believe that we all have it within ourselves to be passionate teachers and that nothing else will quite do the trick pg 1 This first paragraph hooked me
