Thinking About Teaching: A rural social studies teacher's path to strive for excellence by Casey Jakubowski (2020) offers insights about the macros and micros of teaching. The book is geared toward educators and teacher candidates who seek to know more about the teaching profession. The book comprises four parts, including: 1) an introduction of practice which details twenty brief chapters of hot education topics, 2) curriculum and instruction, 3) rural education, and 4) a conclusion that pinpoints recommendations about teaching based on his experience that spans twenty years in the education field. Throughout the book Jakubowski expresses his professional journey by detailing his trials and tribulations as an educator. In addition, Jakubowski prioritizes rural education based on his own research (Jakubowski, 2019) and his professional practice as a social studies teacher, district administrator, state education department associate, and currently a teacher educator. Jakubowski describes exemplary authentic, student-centered learning and care-filled teaching methods. Thinking About Teaching is for growth-mindset educators who aim to improve their craft.
