Teaching that Matters: Engaging Minds, Improving Schools

By Frank Thoms ’60. Rowman & Littlefield. January 2015. Teaching that Matters invites educators to focus on what students learn rather than on delivering information. Through five parts, Thoms invites principals, teachers and concerned citizens to reexamine current practices and seek better ways to meet the needs of todays’ digitally wired students. In the spirit of Steve Jobs, the book, through voices of innovative teachers and principals, provides diverse ways to “think different” about practice.
