Summary

''In Between Hope and Havoc, Frank Smith reflects on a range of subjects critical to the professional and personal lives of teachers, from the human potential for learning to the failed bureaucratic efforts to systematize education. These essays were written over the last few years, mainly in conjunction with workshops and seminars he has conducted.'' ''Among other things, Frank Smith considers the act of reading in relation to other kinds of human experience, why attitudes toward teaching reading and writing are divided along ideological lines, how reading and writing are taught and talked about - frequently to the detriment of learners, how language and the way we are taught form our personal identity, the role and influence of teachers as individuals and of schools as communities, and how realistic expectations that research will answer our questions about teaching and learning are.''--BOOK JACKET.Title Summary field provided by Blackwell North America, Inc.
