What are the characteristics of a great teacher? What qualities of mind and spirit are necessary to help others acquire the knowledge through which they can understand and live a good life? In this book, James Banner and Harold Cannon draw on many years of experience to set forth the intellectual, moral, and emotional capacities that they believe the best teachers must possess. Their book is an inspiring guide to current and future school teachers and to college and university professors--indeed to everyone who teaches anything to anyone else.
"The Elements of Teaching is a true classic. Its inspiring message of hope and professionalism is needed now more than ever. Every teacher and parent should read this lovely book."—Diane Ravitch
