Synopsis

This book presents a series of thoughtful and revealing reflections – excerpts from the inner and outer lives of college teachers – from which emerges a common concern for the interactive and spiritual dimensions of the educational process, and a rich sense of the light which can and should illuminate it. Informed either by personal commitment to Quakerism, or by individual work within Quaker institutions, the contributors offer perspectives that are important for teachers, parents, and readers generally interested in the classroom experience as a process of growth and exploration. Minding the Light provides an inspiring outline of “friendly pedagogy,” which deeply respects individual uniqueness while awakening learners to their active involvements with larger communities.
