(p.167) Eleven Learning and Teaching
Philosophy Americana

Michael Ventimiglia

Fordham University Press

This chapter focuses on Michael Ventimiglia's discussion of the art of educating. Teaching and learning are difficult tasks. Some attitudinal orientations seem crucial to effective teaching, even as the specifications of teaching styles remain different. Among these, willingness to risk oneself as a teacher is included. People believe that those who teach from within the tradition of American philosophy must be both gamblers and lovers.
