Hear Miriam Hirsch discuss her book Teach Like a Human.

Hirsch, Associate Professor of Education and Chair of the Education Program at Stern College for Women, takes education far beyond the classroom. Teach Like a Human (Rowman & Littlefield Publishers, 2020), a collection of essays, provides moral and practical strategies for parents, as well as fellow educators, in getting children to care about themselves, their communities, and the world we share. Drawing on her expertise in organizational theory, curriculum study, pedagogy, and arts education, Dr. Hirsch shows how mindfulness in everyday life can encourage social, physical, and emotional health. Concurrently she discourages the obsession with academic tests and standards, which can dangerously neglect children’s personal needs and goals. Parents and teachers alike can draw their experiences to deepen character, empathy, insight – and, above all, joy in people around us.
