Every few years I like to re-read this book. It really renews my passion for teaching. It's a great reminder of why I use certain practices as well as reminds me of practices I may have forgotten. I received this book as a graduation present from college for my first year of teaching, but twelve years later I still find it practical and useful. I especially appreciated the epilogue and love its comment that our children are becoming an endangered species". Unfortunately that is so true. I do think it might be time to get an updated edition though. It is a few years old." ( )

I really recommend reading this before, BEFORE, you teach anything (including adults). ( )

Recommended by several friends and my mother, I'm finding this book a very succinct and quick guide to really simple and easy success tools. Me gusta! ( )

I received a copy of this book when I first started teaching but didn't get around to reading it until the next summer and I was so glad I did! This book is great for new teachers! ( )

This is a great book for those who are going into the teaching profession, as well as those who are currently teaching. This book provides ways to increase classroom behavior, and minimizing misbehavior. This allows increasedtime for learning. The book also teaches how to improve teaching. There are many aspects to this book, and is well worth the time it takes to read it. ( )
