A critical reason this is (well, maybe not THE best) a useful book is that YOU do the work! The more you apply what you learn and understand, the greater your growth. This is not a quick fix book, but one to assist you in a lifelong journey of self-discovery. It is difficult to understand what another person really thinks or feels, because it is dangerous to your career, your relationships, and even your existence. You can learn to know who you really are. As you travel you will find things about yourself you dislike and like. The more honest you are the more you will like yourself and amazingly enough, like and be liked more easily by others. By using the metaphors of Giant and diminished self, you have a means to constantly evaluate what you are experiencing. As you do this you are getting more in tune with what you're thinking and feeling. Most people are not congruent, that is, what they think and what they feel are not in synch. In psychology when this happens it is called inappropriate affect. The face you show does not reflect what you feel or think. Yet, in many situations you cannot (because the repercussions are too great) express or even show what you're thinking and feeling so what you say does not reflect your internal experience. As the years pass you move further away from congruency and often can no longer even recognize what you are feeling and thinking. You believe that what you're "supposed" to feel or think in that setting is what you're actually feeling and thinking. I will try to help you discover who you are or could have become or still could become. In metaphor it is creating your GIANT SELF, which is the realization of your inherent potentials plus hard work! This self is a marked contrast to your diminished self. This self is the brainwashed, depressed, frightened, rigid self that those with greater power have made you believe is who you are. Without even knowing you I can say that you can become a person who can look yourself in the mirror and honestly like who you see. It means opening up to ideas and concepts that may be confusing, unnerving, and may mean that your world as you know it now will never be the same. Many of the ideas seem to be so simple and logical that you will say, "I knew that!" You may know it, but have you had the courage to apply it? I think one reason Dr. Wilson believes in this book is that I send an honest searchlight into my mind, body, and soul. Some of the things I discovered I did not like - still do not like. However, I found that by challenging EVERYTHING I believed I was able to free myself from many of the errors of my past. Besides my dark sides, I found a rather decent, intelligent person who was worthy of being loved and appreciated. One thing I had to admit and face was the number and constancy of errors I made on a regular basis. Humans are error-making machines. There are so many things that cause us to make mistakes that each of us could talk for hours about the stupid things we've done. How many times have you pulled instead of pushed even though the sign on the door was very clear? I know I have. I shake my head and laugh - most of the time. Other times my inattention or stupidity creates errors of judgement that could have caused a serious accident. I misjudge how far away a car is before I shoot out into the intersection. Or, I'm in a rush and I take a chance knowing full well that I'm acting like a fool. Take our senses. Each information bit that stimulates one of our sensory nerves is affected by our attention toward it, its magnitude, its intensity, its uniqueness, and the number and sensitivity of the nerve endings that receive it. It then travels through that sensory system with countless chances for the message to be garbled or misinterpre

How does a teacher become a more creative teacher? In THEY TOUCHED MY LIFE I demonstrated through the events as teaching stories what I considered the characteristics and behaviors necessary for being an effective teacher. I portrayed a situation, explained what I did, and then I offered brief comments about what I learned. Besides entertaining you, I hoped to show you what teachers and children face in their daily efforts to survive in an environment that is too often traumatic and frustrating. In many of the stories I did things which were inept and visceral responses that I would not do now. Partly because the laws and policies have changed to meet the changing times, but more because much more is known about the physiological and psychological causes of human behavior. We know from evolution that most species changes occur over long periods. There are many notable exceptions, but none would give validity to statements about how different children are now as compared to forty years ago. Especially when these changes are made to appear as if there have been modifications in the physiology of children. I think a structural analysis and comparison of children from that era to now would prove there are no major physical differences There have been dramatic changes in technology and in the power relationships between individuals and groups and within countries as well as between countries. The rights of racial, religious, and ethnic groups as well as for women and children has given many children the belief that what each child wants is more important than his role in the group. This has made the old coercive methods of control less effective. Good teachers now must rely more on persuasive techniques and rewards instead of fear and punishment. However, coercion and persuasion are two sides of the same coin, which is control. You saw in Touch how I struggled to develop a method, which was based on mutual respect. I failed time and again because of my lack of knowledge of how to make this alternative to punishment work and because of the very different expectations of my administrators. Further, the administrators were raised to respond to fear and then they were trained to use fear and intimidation upon teachers as well as students and parents, so they were not receptive to any changes which gave autonomy to the teacher and encouraged real independence and choice for children. (In November of 1980 a kindergarten teacher spent an hour in my first grade room with children she had known from the previous year. While we spoke children occasionally came over and asked me a question, but basically the class ran itself. They knew what they had to do and they knew where to get help from others or resources in the room. When they were done they could have earned time to draw, paint, read, or play games. They were independent. She was amazed because she had seen them behave like babies all year with their previous teacher. The principal, a sensitive and bright woman had asked me, to salvage them, which I had done.) People raised to believe that coercion is necessary to motivate children see mutual respect as weakness and ineffectiveness. In one anecdote a different principal only noticed the noise in my room and completely missed the intellectual excitement as the children and I argued and shouted out ideas about what constituted a living thing as opposed to an inanimate object. Later, I was given a lecture from her about not following my lesson plan as well as losing control. She had no clue that the class and I were experiencing Socratic education at its highest level. All she could see was that I had gone over the twenty minutes for science as stated on my lesson plan, which meant to her that I had cheated them of twenty-five minutes of their language t

Be an elementary teacher? In 1958 this was not even a consideration. I was going to be a child psychiatrist and novelist. I hadnt done any writing during my four years in the U.S. Air Force, but I had functioned as a psychologist-social worker. At twenty-one I had my own office and I was giving marriage counseling to noncommissioned officers and officers who were decades older than I was. I had practical experience doing individual and group therapy and even used psychodrama techniques. The psychiatrists I worked with all believed I was a natural therapist and they gave me dozens of books to read, we discussed their cases, and they wrote recommendations for me for medical school. My goals were lofty; then, reality set in. I didnt have the money (or grades) to become a doctor. My bachelors degree in psychology was next to useless. A friend suggested I teach while I pursued advanced degrees to become a child psychologist. It was a painful compromise. I had already given up my dreams of becoming a professional actor or athlete and I would have to be an elementary rather than a high school teacher so I couldnt coach football or track. It was like being a dishwasher rather than a restaurant owner. There was also the commonly held belief then that a male elementary teacher must be somewhat effeminate, if not an outright homosexual. Throughout my career people have been surprised (disappointed?) that a man who looks like a light-heavyweight boxer could be a teacher of small children. Still, I had a wife and a child to support so I got a teaching credential. I had been bored in school and I was determined to make my classes interesting, but I was totally unprepared emotionally, educationally, or organizationally. I was wildly successful only because I was charismatic, creative, and I truly enjoyed the children. The more I realized how much more effective I could be with so many more children every year as a teacher than I could be as a psychologist, the more I knew I had stumbled into a great career. I had found my calling. I could express my artistic self through music, art, dancing, and drama. My athletic needs were met by playing with the children while teaching them all the sports I loved. I had a captive audience for my need to perform as I read to them dramatically and transmitted my eclectic love of learning. I was proficient in many psychological techniques, which came in handy as I probed their brains and changed their behaviors. I was almost too clinical in the first few years as I secretly tested my children using the ink blot test, sentence completion, and the TAT (ambiguous pictures) which I used as means to motivate their writing. Later, I realized that it was not so much the testing, as it was the time I spent individually with children that made the difference. I was interested in each of them and they knew it and so they shared their lives inside and outside the school as if I was their therapist. Therapists never get the opportunity to see their clients in the environments that are causing their problems. I not only saw things through their eyes and the dynamics of their relationships, but I was in the position to actually change these by what I did. Whether it was as simple as changing their seat or reading group or placing them in allegedly extemporaneous plays to act out (feel) a role that they needed to experience, I made immediate changes in their lives. It was then I knew that my (often) traumatic experiences as a gifted Jewish child alone in hostile schools where I was seen as an evil presence was not unusual. It was not religious, racial, cultural, or gender differences alone, it was the very structure of the schools that caused the horrific and demeaning situations that almost every child experiences.
