Getting to the Core : Reflections on Teaching and Learning

Joseph S. Levine

A wonderful collection of 46 reflective essays that examine the role of the teacher and the challenges faced when trying to help others learn. A must read for adult educators. Presented in an unparalleled, refreshing format. Provides extremely helpful insights into the heart and soul of education - the personal commitment and involvement of those who have dedicated themselves to the wonderful, joyous, rewarding, yet sometimes exasperating, task of helping people learn, grow, and develop. Fascinated by his own inquisitive desire to learn, Joe Levine has devoted his professional career to awakening that same spirit in others. His ability to ask questions, challenge ideas and encourage reflection have long been a hallmark of his teaching at Michigan State University.
