Learning to Kneel

Carrie J. Preston

Columbia University Press

Preston discusses her experience taking noh lessons from a professional actor in Tokyo and recounts how noh pedagogy challenged her notions of “good” teaching and learning. Western pedagogies are typically obsessed with success or performance outcomes, innovation, and creating the illusion of a non-hierarchical classroom, but tradition and mimicry are central to noh pedagogy.
