The Reading Project

Because even though I read a lot on my own, it helps to have some structure. There are a lot of books out there people.

After some 30 years of [analyzing teaching], I have concluded that classroom teaching—particularly at the elementary and secondary levels—is perhaps the most complex, most challenging, and most demanding, subtle, nuanced, and frightening activity that our species has ever invented. In fact, when I compared the complexity of teaching with that much more highly rewarded profession, “doing medicine,” I concluded that the only time medicine even approaches the complexity of an average day of classroom teaching is in an emergency room during a natural disaster. When 30 patients want your attention at the same time, only then do you approach the complexity of the average classroom on an average day.

Sixty years ago Sunday, March 9, 1954, Edward R. Murrow blistered Sen. Joseph McCarthy with this statement. It was the conclusion of that night’s installment of his CBS series, See It Now, in which Murrow blasted McCarthy’s witch-hunting and recklessness.

Murrow’s pursuit of McCarthy, the infamous instigator of the communist witch-hunts of the early 1950s, was dramatised in the film Good Night, and Good Luck.
