Spectacular Pedagogy

My Dad (An exceptional English Teacher for almost 50 years) has amassed a library of "spectacular pedadgogy" as he calls it. In other words, he has a huge selection of books about teaching that he would like to hand down to the next generation of teachers-


If you are interested, please let me know and I will post a list of titles- Then I can ship them to you for the cost of postage

What a generous offer. Your father must have been a very dedicated teacher. Why don't you go ahead and post the titles for us? It's difficult to say what we might be interested in without knowing what books you have. Thanks for doing this.

That's a great idea, Linda!  I am also interested in perusing the titles available.  Being a book afficionado as well, I continue to grow my own collection of spectacular pedagogy--we look forward to the listing (if it's not too much trouble to type it or copy and paste it here).

Thanks again for the offer!

That is very generous. I also have books I'd love to donate forward. Let me know, y'all!

Maybe this is a new idea to start here at Enotes.  Teachers could post the books they have which are no longer needed, but would be useful to other teachers.  We could post a list of titles and whether or not they've been claimed.  Teachers who claim the titles pay for the shipping.  What do you think about that?

I like the idea of starting this as a service of this site. We can have our own teacher store to help each other out. I would love to see the titles. THe title captured me.

That would be a great idea, since all of us have a lot of ideas that we can share and we also can learn different things from these titles.

Hear, hear! I second (10th?) that motion. People could post what books they're looking for and what they have available. It could become a book exchange.
