Teacher-Scholar: The Journal of the State Comprehensive University


Christopher Uhl’s Teaching as if Life Matters: The Promise of a New Education Culture is unlike anything I have ever reviewed. Instead of reading with yellow highlighter in hand ready to mark key sentences and concepts, I wrote in my personal journal rather than the margins. Reading this book was a contemplative, rather than an academic, experience reminding me of why I had been drawn to the vocation of teaching in the first place.
