What Others Have Said
If Holden Caulfield Were in My Classroom
By the time Bernie Scheinís students arrive in his middle school classroom, they are little more than a gaggle of psychological defense mechanisms. For over thirty years, Schein has worked with students in middle-class Atlanta, helping them rediscover who they really are.
With humanity, humor, and compassion, Schein gets his students to reveal the secrets of their lives, helping them through this joyous and difficult endeavor. Through stories from his classroom, he describes how true emotion, rather than pure reason, is the key to discovering real relationships and personal truth. His account is psychologically sensitive, socially accurate, and will be a real eye-opener for parents.
Schein received his Masterís Degree in Education from Harvard, and has been a principal, a director of teacher training, and a teacher of creative writing and literature at the middle school and high school levels.
