Reviews - What do our customers think?
Meaningful Teaching/ Deep Learning  Dec 3, 2009
The Teacher's Way: Teaching and the Contemplative Life reexamines the Christian Contemplative tradition known as Lectio Divina and applies
that to the learning experience of the Millennial student. The author recognizes the pull that these students and their families have in regarding undergraduate education from the point of view of holding consumerist expectations informed by a "bottom line" value system. Nonetheless, Lichtmann brings a philosophy professor's insistent curiosity about "the self" of each of her students in her classroom with a confidant "open to risk" availability on her part as a teacher. There is a kind of "a- ha" recognition as you read through her book that you are being invited to "re-vision" one's self and one's students in light of contemplative traditions that come from Christian, Muslim, Taoist and other ancient "ways of knowing." In her hands, the classroom moves from being a place in which one applies techniques to achieve measurable outcomes to the classroom-as-verb,
as a sacred place in which relationships between students, teachers, questions, modes of inquiry, traditions and contemporary forms of knowledge collide with the unexpected. Her book reads like a quiet meditation on teaching and she invites the reader to think through with her what teaching can mean. If you are familiar with the work of Parker Palmer or Richard Rohr, then I think you will find this author's book meaningful and valuable to you whether you are a teacher, a student, or someone who is simply interested in how classroom teaching can be informed by the mystical teaching traditions she writes about.
