The Teaching Artist Sutras by Michael Wiggins
This book can be downloaded and read in iBooks on your Mac or iOS device.
A book for every teaching artist's library.
Written by a veteran teaching artist, and inspired by the Yoga Sutras of Patanjali, The Teaching Artist Sutras describes best practices for teaching artists and addresses all aspects of the TA's professional life. A reflective guide-book presented as a collection of aphorisms, The Teaching Artist Sutras takes a philosophical look at the profession, with brisk commentary on the essential elements of lesson planning, classroom management, curriculum design, reflection, assessment, and making a living as a teaching artist.
Michael Wiggins has worked as an arts administrator and professional teaching artist, in New York City and San Francisco, for about twenty years.
