To Teach: The Journey, in Comics – William Ayers

Ayers discusses his pedagogical philosophy and provides examples from his time as an elementary school teacher as well as stories of other teachers. It is rather illuminating, especially for those (read: just about everyone) who take teachers for granted or are unaware of what they have to endure. Still, as a teacher and a comicwright, I found it too idealistic (which I blame in part for the incredible 50% drop out rate of teachers after one year) and that it wasn't so much a comic as a treatise supported by illustrations. And maybe I'm the only one to think so, but the Ayers avatar reminded me too much of Scott McCloud's depiction in his guides to understanding comics.
