B1:Teaching: Education and Academics at the Turn of the Century


Publication Date: June 7, 2011

A collection of columns previously published in the Phi Kappa Phi Forum, focusing on Education and Academics. Topics include: vignettes of students and teachers; a sample parent/teacher conference and the players involved; a retrospective look at cyclical changes in the classrooms of public schools; the necessity of parent and teacher involvement in motivating responsible funding for education

 As a parent, teacher and adminirator, I found "Teaching" to be a thoughtful and insightful reflection of issues that transcend teaching and learning. Each article speaks to the social, emotional, and academic concerns facing students, parents, and teachers.


Dec. 2011Jeffrey Penn MY,

I was reading Diane Ravitch's "The Death and Life of the Great American School System: How Testing and Choice Are Undermining Education" concurrent with "Teaching: Education and Academics at the turn of the century," alternating between the two and on a couple occasions, I forgot which I was reading. That puts Palardy in very good company. Palardy is now retired and she is reflecting on her career in education. Let's hope she continues to shed light on an often misunderstood profession.

Palardy uses common experiences and dialogue to delve into topics ranging from education reform to the usefulness of homework and the rank book. The development of each child intellectually, socially and emotionally is a common thread.

I just finished reading a book that I received for swapping my book,

The Fifteen Houses, with another author at the New England Authors

Expo 2013. As I read "Teaching" by Terry Crawford Palardy, I found it

feeding my soul with even more questions that may weigh on the minds

of teachers each new school year as their students filter into their

classrooms. It made me think back on my education and ...the many

different schools I attended that provided me with the variety of

teachers who tried to instill in me a desire to want to learn. Feeling

the weight of the world on my shoulders in my younger days, I wonder

how much of the burden I carried may have been relieved if one of

these "teachers" had showered me with even one ounce of encouragement

as   we faced each other on the first day of school or any day of the

school   year for that matter. Students come from many different

backgrounds, cultures and social/financial status and if teachers

today, new and old, ask themselves just a few of the questions

outlined   in this book, Teaching , their work days will be much easier

for   them and it will help them toward their professional goal of being

able to truly teach. All teachers should read this book and learn from

the   wisdom and personal experience of its author.
