I love this book so much that I bought it for a teacher friend. I will also keep it even though I don't teach in a classroom anymore. I did use some of the ideas (or variations of them) while teaching middle school and the effect was amazing. If you teach children, this book is for you!

Many of the examples that were there were for K-12 with a heavy emphasis on high school classrooms so they weren't relevant for me. I was also not overly impressed with the ideas given.
