Teaching during the Jurassic: Wit and Wisdom from an Old Hippie Teacher is a memoir in the vein of Bill Bryson’s A Walk in the Woods. Instead of the Appalachian Trail, we follow all the twists and turns of Martin Settle’s teaching career from his first approach to teaching as a hippie subversive to his eventual triumph as a self-actualized person.

Part memoir, part teaching guide, this book charts the “Jurassic” period of teaching – no personal computers, no cell phones, no internet, and the introduction of new social movements in the classroom (women’s rights, civil rights, and gay rights). Settle addresses some of the universals of the profession – how to deal with administrators, behavioral problems in the classroom, the outsider student, the psychologically dangerous student, and more.
