I just wrote a blog post that I owe to this book. Here is an excerpt:

At the end of last year, I bought Day One and Beyond to help plan my vision for next year. The beginning of the book offered a bit of wisdom that is my main motivating mantra for the year:

Good Book, if you are a teacher and looking for some summer reading to freshen up your art... this would be helpful. Creative ideas for setting up our class rooms and the atmosphere. Some ideas are not necessarily doable, but one can sort through the thoughts and apply thsoe that fit you.

Wonderful. Wormeli writes with specificity and compassion about the challenges of teaching middle school. His advice, more than any other authors' on the subject, stayed with me throughout my first year.

Primarily for teachers in their first couple of years of teaching, this book still offers some practical tips for more seasoned teachers...with Rick Wormeli's humor, of course.

I wish I had read this last summer (before my first year of teaching), however, it still had a bunch of advice and tips that I'll use this coming yeat.

Good ideas--this is definitely geared toward middle school. I started reading it when I thought I would be teaching 6th--but now it looks more like 4th...

I still took a lot of good notes.

I read this book a few years ago when I first became a teacher but thought I should revisit it. Wormeli offers great advice for any teacher, experienced or new to the profession.

I enjoyed this book while in grad school and think that most first year teachers should read it too. There are some ideas that I wish would work but definitely don't in my school.
