    1. I enjoyed this book, and I d recommend it to all my fellow teacher friends There aren t many concepts presented in this book that are new and different, per se, but the presentation as a graphic novel comic book is fresh It s also always nice to have a friendly reminder of what it truly means to be a GOOD teacher In light of all the discussions about the effectiveness of NCLB and standardized testing and whatnot I think this book does a nice job of offering up potential solutions, or at least a [...]


    2. I picked this book up because I wanted to learn about the conundrums and difficulties of teaching from the inside, which graphic novels are often quite good at expressing I felt that this book taught me nothing that I didn t already know or could idealize on my own though Kids are people too Labels shouldn t replace looking at the whole child Perceived weaknesses are often strengths in a different environment Et cetera It s all true, but it could all be said in less space, perhaps leaving room f [...]


    3. To Teach the journey, in comics is a radical vision of teaching as a journey toward a better world and teachers as fellow travelers on an adventure of discovery alongside their students The author uses stories of creative and nurturing ways he engaged his kindergarteners and profiles of other empowering and inspiring teachers to illustrate his core values of love, seeing students as people, compassion and building relationships and a sense of community in the classroom and the world I think pres [...]


    4. A few pages into this I thought I was going to be in for an eye rolling walk done cynicism lane but I have to admit that I mostly agreed with the author On the surface it seems a little hipppy dippy but at end of the day, I think it mostly does a good job of capturing some of the frustrations and challenges of teaching in the aftermath of Bush s NCLB without going so far overboard that it digresses into an intelligible rant like so many other anti NCLB can easily do.Some of the panels I especial [...]


    5. Radical and philosophical are two words I d use to describe To Teach by William Ayers and Ryan Alexander Tanner It will make you question every tradition, rule, and classroom procedure we foist upon children in the name of education and discipline.In this book, Ayers attempts to squash the notion of the mythical heroic teacher saving his students from their lives, but in a somewhat contradictory fashion, this book is also a kind of hero s journey in its own right, as the teacher sets out on a qu [...]


    6. I loved reading this book as it was a nice break from the traditional text books While I can t agree with his argument completely, I respect the work and value Ayers opinions.


    7. This is such a great book Ayers takes many of the key passages from the original and reimagines them as graphic stories about real teachers and students facing the tough questions in schools What s worth knowing and doing This books stands for everything that learning could be i.e inquiry based, student centered, interest driven , if education leaders and union leadership had the courage to demand that we support and provide for students and teachers in every community The truth is that the idea [...]


    8. Definitely a fresh way of getting the message across about how we re not alone in thinking the system really is flawed and we re not alone in our efforts to fight the system in subversive ways for the sake of our children And if we ever feel it s just not worth the fight, we should persevere because one day our children will thank us A definite must have for all teachers, and the bonus is that it s a well written, well drawn, humorous book where pictures cover the pages than the words.


    9. Got about halfway through before calling it quits I was expecting it to be about what it s like to be a teacher, when really it s of an illustrated telling of this guy s personal teaching philosophy While I agree with a lot of what he s saying, it doesn t make for an interesting read.



    10. Some good points about the practice of teaching and that good teachers never know everything We continue to educate ourselves to educate others Learning continues to evolve as we do.



    11. OMG WEATHERMEN BILL AYERS MOONMEN OBAMA William Ayers became a national name during the 2008 presidential campaign, where it was revealed he taught Barack Obama how to build bombs Young Obama was just eight years old when he went on missions with the Weather Underground Organization, a revolutionary group hellbent on destroying Freedom.While Ayers was never convicted of any crime, his name is forever synonymous with violent radicals As a Chicago resident and Obama campaign donor , his decades ol [...]


    12. I really, really, really like this book It s like a heart felt love letter to teachers And it s a great distillation with pictures of what I believe education SHOULD be about and the things I continue to strive to embody in my own teaching Ayers and by consequence Alexander Tanner s artwork focus on the importance of seeing the individuality of students and knowing that teachers and learners build knowledge together the importance of creating physical spaces that honor, inspire, and support rich [...]


    13. Just the right read to lift my spirits as a teacher This book was so fun to read and thought provoking as well It brought me to center to remind me of the idealism and principals that drew me to the profession but with a realism to the obstacles and experience that honors the profession as well.


    14. To say this book has been a mind expanding read, is not nearly close enough to the truth This is a book that should be included on reading lists for all students in teacher colleges I don t imagine it will be though, because so much of what Bill Ayers expounds is not in line with the way the government wants teachers to teach.His philosophy which comes across so well in both the drawings and the text is one of inquiry Drawing inspiration from a diverse range of people including the famous direct [...]


    15. I saw this in the graphic novels section of my local library and picked it up I m planning to acquire my own copy so I can re read it every year or so.For me, this book is the bird s eye complement to, Teach Like a Champion Summary, which I love 2.0 is out, but I ve only read the original Where Teach Like a Champion Summary is the nuts and bolts, technical side of teaching, To Teach The Journey, in Comics is the ethical guide for how to use those skills It also presents a human view of educatio [...]


    16. What is the ultimate goal of an educator Is it to prepare students for standardized tests, leveled groups, and administrative requirement Is it to provide a welcome environment for open thought and experimentation What are our internal questions regarding education, and how can we answer them through real world application These are some of the questions William Ayers tackles in this graphic novel A veteran teacher, Ayers uses anecdotal bits to highlight ways in which he himself has faced, and i [...]


    17. This book should be required reading for students in schools of education Ayers delivers a series of crucial ideas about the craft and art of teaching in a way that is engaging and very accessible He shows us what it truly takes to be a teacher no, it is not technique There are plenty of teachers who can do good lessons plans and manage a classroom only to be proven bad teachers The narrative not only deals with Bill s story, but he also introduces us to his kindergarten class as well as other t [...]


    18. First, let me get this off my chest This probably qualifies as crypto racism, but when Bill Ayers was all over the news during the Obama campaign, I totally pictured him as looking exactly like Ritchie Havens Sorry.This book is fantastic It doesn t really put forth anything new or unprecedented But it advances a simple, clear vision of what teaching should be in a common sense manner Much in the same way that Be Here Now and Zen and the Art of Motorcycle Maintenance An Inquiry Into Values clarif [...]


    19. Written in a graphic, comic strip format, To Teach The Journey, in Comics is Bill Ayers yes, THAT Bill Ayers ruminations on what we do as teachers Ayers uses an extended metaphor of a journey to conceptualize teaching as the ongoing, cyclical learning endeavor that it is He wisely touches upon the core issues of teaching that every thoughtful educator grapples with year after year how we see our students, how we create a safe environment for learning, liberating the curriculum from inevitable bu [...]


    20. Ask yourself how many books about education have you read Then ask yourself how many opinions about education you ve had without knowing any educational theory Surely you don t want to be caught up in educational mumbo jumbo Point is everyone thinks they have ideas or solutions to education without knowing anything about how humans learn Teachers do and the best try to build a great environment where they can learn, discover and explore Education professor Bill Ayers yes from Election 2008 fame [...]


    21. Bill Ayers is the teacher I wanted to be nurturing and creative Unfortunately, I allowed myself to be molded into the teacher I was expected to be regimental and meeting standards Every parent, teacher, and administrator should read this book the artwork makes it accessible to every type of reader and seek a Bill Ayers in every classroom Ryan Alexander Tanner adds even imagination to the journey with his clever drawings They enhance Bill s words and beautifully illustrate the real people in his [...]


    22. Passionate treatise by Ayers, who loves his profession and the children he teaches, written by a public education teacher for other teachers or those interested in the education process, focusing on education reform and creative education practices within the system It provides ideas on how to work around the rigid parameters and modern day teaching to the test standardization policies and data driven outcomes, and on how to view each child as a separate but whole individual with their own learn [...]


    23. In the land of standardized testing, Common Core, school closings, teacher devaluation, and student evaluations, I am reinvigorated by Ayers powerful work I read the original as I prepared to become an educator and was equally touched by it somehow, as a GN, it evokes in me an even greater sense of urgency and passion to do something , to challenge the system that is currently eroding our educational practice, to find ways to make sure that we truly can step off the cliff and into the unknown, s [...]


    24. Graphic novel of the true life adventures of William Ayers as an elementary school teacher Ayers obviously loves teaching and loves his students but has to struggle with administration and paperwork His approach to teaching is for lots of group activities and lots of kinetic interaction with the learning items He believes that kids learn best when having fun and feeling like they are playing instead of working His class is very busy and loud As an introvert who likes structure I would have been [...]


    25. I was really surprised by how much I loved this book There are so many critical pedagogy memoirs out there, but this was the first I had seen in graphic novel form The advantage of this format is that you can see how the concepts of dialogue and student led pedagogy actually work I also loved the way that he brought in friends of his who had similar teaching styles It s also a quick read, which is great for those of us who are working on degrees or teaching all day long This is definitely my go [...]


    26. Something about the blurbs on the back of this book made me think this would be much of a autobiographical text I was hoping for something with lots of funny anecdotes like in the zine On Subbing This was the wrong thing to expect This is a primarily didactic, theoretical text about the art of teaching Which has its place, of course Adequate and fine for what it is I do agree with the philosophy for the most part, though have little hands on experience as a former homeschooler.


    27. This is a great book for aspiring teachers to read It follows a teacher through all the ups and downs of teaching He explains difficulties he has faced in the classroom and proper ways he believes they should be handled He offers a lot of great advice and brought attention to things that I may have never thought of before actually becoming a teacher The fact that is was in comic form made it a lot interesting and appealing Overall the story wasn t the most exciting one, but it was very informat [...]
