A Look Back: “Teaching Is Organizing (Or Should Be)”

A Look Back: “Teaching Is Organizing (Or Should Be)”




I thought that new – and veteran – readers might find it interesting if I began sharing my best posts from over the years. You can see the entire collection here.


Teaching Is Organizing (Or Should Be) is an article I co-authored with my good friend Craig McGarvey in 2005.

We discuss community organizing and how it relates to my first years of teaching.

For me, the most memorial sentence in the piece is when I recount asking students to do an anonymous evaluation of my teaching one week during the first year of my career. A student wrote:

“I didn’t learn anything, but that was okay because Mr. Ferlazzo tried his best.”

Though I’ve certainly had my bad days since that time, fortunately my evaluations have been a bit more positive 🙂 (see My Best Posts On Students Evaluating Classes (And Teachers) )
