“The Best Book on Teaching”

The following was written by Evelyn Marshall after the conference of the Association for Supervision and Curriculum Development (ASCD) in Orlando, Florida. I had presented the morning of the first day of the conference. This episode occurred on the second day. She wrote:

A tall muscular man approached me and quietly began, “I bought the book yesterday, and last night I read 120 pages.”

Suddenly, his eyes and voice took on an animation as he continued with great deliberateness,  “I’m going to give these ideas to my teachers as soon as I get back. This is the best book on teaching that I have ever read. I had to come over and tell you that.”
