Description

Who knows the teacher that students will find when the door to their classroom closes? We all hope for an all-star, but too often find an entrenched minor leaguer. "Behind Closed Doors" is a first book by an author with a background of 26 years as a public school teacher and principal. It explores the author's rude awakening, when a second career caused him to question whether he had accomplished anything at all during his years as an educator. George Coussoulos questions the methodologies and content of much that is called education. He takes the reader through his varied experiences, and illustrates that much of what we thought we have accomplished in our schools has been an illusion. He provides concrete suggestions for changing the art and science of teaching. Mr. Coussoulos views what teachers do in their schools as the key to effective changes in education--not what is prescribed by legislatures nor by multiple-choice standardized tests. The author offers a life of experiences for the consideration of educators seeking to explore the possibilities of improving what occurs in the autonomy of their own classrooms.
