Teaching with Love: A Feminist Approach to Early Childhood Education

Synopsis

Teachers commonly talk about loving their students, yet no effort has been made to explore the powerful educational potential inherent in these loving feelings. Teaching with Love breaks new ground by paying careful, scholarly attention to the nature, the scope, the dimensions, & the variety of teacherly love. In a highly readable narrative that builds on the feminist notion of an ethic of care & draws from the fields of psychology & women's studies, this book examines & analyzes the experiences of two primary grade teachers as they set about trying to create & enact a vision of early childhood education centered around loving relationships.
