Editorial Reviews


"The book has many fine qualities―chief among them is a very desirable structure for helping teachers organize and maintain classrooms in which students are likely to flourish. This book goes a long way toward helping teachers acquire that competence." (C.M. Charles, Professor Emeritus 2007-05-11)

"Takes Gardner, Covey, Tomlinson, and wraps them all together in an approach that I find very motivating." (Karen Kersey, Second-Grade Teacher 2007-05-11)

"Contains information that is vitally important for the success of any classroom." (Julie Duford, Fifth-Grade Teacher 2007-05-10)

"Gives us a format that we can develop into a philosophy or goal for our classrooms so our students become enthusiastic about learning. I could barely put this book down until I finished it. In fact, I am recommending it to my principal." (Debbie Halcomb, Fourth-Grade Teacher 2007-05-10)
