While there are good things in the book, I wanted more specifics. I would read through a chapter and get to the end and be constantly thinking "OK, good ideas, now how do I do that?" And the little "poems" started to irritate me.

Sarcastic in a BAD way. The book says "We don't want to insult your intelligence" several times... Oops - you did.

I just read an awesome book for teachers called Seven Simple Secrets by Annette Breaux and Todd Whitaker. This book has seven simple secrets to help you in your classroom. A chapter is devoted to each of the seven secrets. The authors give examples from classrooms and then give specific ways to implement that secret in your classroom. The secrets include: planning, classroom management, instruction, attitude, professionalism, discipline, and motivation/inspiration.
This book has a lot of great

Excellent book!! Great for first year teachers, as well as seasoned teachers. It is a very easy read, with common sense, practical strategies to implement in your classroom. I loved the scenarios in the book because you can immediately relate to them. I highly recommend this book!! Thinking about reading What Great Teachers Do Differently next.

Excellent book for teachers whether you've been teaching for years or are beginning your first year. It is short and to the point. The authors present the common factors found in effective teachers versus ineffective teachers. Very inspiring!

All my teacher friends: This was the textbook for my practicum class this semester, but I actually really liked it. It wasn't really set up like a textbook, and it had a lot of good advice and made lots of good points to consider and reconsider in your teaching. :)

Great read! Especially for two specific categories of teachers. 1. New Teachers Great to help you miss the sinkholes that break the legs of so many young workhorses. 2. Tired teachers. Remind yourself of what you "should" know. I recommend it!

Great concepts. This is a book which should be re-read multiple times during the lifespan of a career.
