Editorial Reviews

Review

“A must have for any teacher who wants to connect with students who are either reluctant to participate in class or who have everything to say. The book's tools provide a welcome segue into their terrain and show you how to master it. Included are many ideas and suggestions for bringing the Internet into your classroom and harnessing its power for the benefit of your students.” (Melody Aldrich, English Teacher and Department Chair 2012-01-25)

“This book comes at the right time with answers for teachers, principals, and schools who want to be on the cutting edge of the effective use of technology, the internet, and teacher pedagogy.” (Jim Anderson, Principal 2012-01-25)

“This book provides a wealth of information related to teaching in a blended classroom. Designed for 21st century educators, this text is a powerful and valuable resource for those that want to challenge, engage, and facilitate learning for all students.” (Judy Brunner, Clinical Faculty, Author, Consultant 2012-01-25)

“This book will appeal to a wide range of educators and provide them with the foundation for creating a perfect blend for their classrooms.” (David Callaway, 7th-Grade Social Studies Teacher 2012-01-25)

“This book will help teachers move their students online while maintaining effective teaching practices!” (Cathy Bonneville Hix, K-12 Social Studies Specialist 2012-01-25)

Catlin Tucker takes on the questions that serve as teachers' biggest barriers in exploring what technology can bring to their professional experiences. Questions of assessment, time, and access, as well as practical suggestions for how to begin working with modern collaborative resources, serve to guide teachers through the philosophical and pedagogical challenges of exploring the promise of blended learning. (Rushton Hurley, Executive Director)

"In Blended Learning in Grades 4-12, Tucker takes on the questions that serve as teachers' biggest barriers to exploring what technology can bring to their professional experiences. Too often, exploration of educational technology is more about the tools than the learning, and consequently it is a pleasure to read this book in which inspiring and empowering students serves as the primary frame for discussion. The skilled examination of the larger question of how to teach well using whatever one has will make Tucker's book a valuable resource for teachers for a long time to come." (Rushton Hurley, Executive Director 2012-04-09)

"This book shows teachers how to use technology and blended learning practices to blend online discussion with face-to-face classroom instruction." (Midwest Book Review, September 2012)

This book exceeded my expectations! Thank you!
I wanted to get a good picture of what a Blended Learning environment could look like and I really can "see" it after reading this book.
Ms. Tucker is an ELA teacher but she "nailed" the chapter on mathematics! I couldn't have asked for a more vivid description of where I could start implmenting a Blended environment.
She gave few, but powerfull tools to try. She had the same philosophy as I do in designing student-active learning environments within the classroom as well as outside of the classroom.
Every teacher should read this book if they are wondering how to incorporate technology in their teaching in a meaningful manner.
Thank you Catlin.

This book is mostly focused around English Language Arts. There are some helpful lesson plans for other subjects. Most of the recommendations are very general, for example- "bake a recipe" is an example of a way to integrate math into real-world and potentially with technology as students figure out how to convert units of measurement.

Good book with lots of information. I only purchased this book because it was required otherwise it's one of those books that you should sit down at the bookstore, buy a cup of coffee and browse through. Good tips for teacher but nothing innovative. A lot of fundamentals and common sense information that any teacher can gather by doing a LITTLE research on their own.
