Dr. Belinda Ross
Teaching to Transform: From the Inside Out, Dr. Belinda Ross takes a poignant look at our educational system today and the all important relationship between teacher and student as it relates to the changing, diversified student population. Though she focuses on the college and university level of students, the book outlines strategies for any level where learning is taking place. Having been a student and now an instructor for over twenty years, she challenges educators to look deep within themselves at how or if they are changing to effectively address this shift with care and understanding. It is a serious, revealing and straightforward approach filled with compassion but also hard truths for both student and educators. It is undeniable that transforming with open eyes and willing hearts is the only way to go if we are to effectively teach in our society today. We have taught with are heads but now it is time to add our hearts.
