Awaken The Stars

Reflections on What We Really Teach 

(0 Reviews)

Edited by Shannon Mayer and Jacquie Van Hoomissen



25 practical passionate perceptive professors share what they are really trying to teach their students.

Two professors asked fellow faculty members at the University of Portland, a Holy Cross institution in the Pacific Northwest, what it is they really teach. The answer is revealed in the insights and anecdotes of this remarkable collection of essays.

Here twenty-five distinguished professors reveal the philosophy that drives their work in a wide variety of academic disciplines: helping students recognize and develop their own gifts and discover the deepest longing of their lives. Essays will surprise and inspire students and parents alike, and will encourage educators to be attentive and awake in fresh ways as they engage their students.
