Annotation: The author, a highly respected teacher of teachers, reveals that a really successful teacher must know more than his or her subject matter. The best teachers, according to Parker, must care deeply about their students as well as their disciplines. Above all, they must know themselves. Eloquently illustrating the importance of what he calls "the identity and integrity" of the instructor, this master teacher demonstrates that good teaching is truly an art.
