This is a 140-page book packed with practical ideas of how to help students learn. The chapters are: 1. On becoming a teacher, 2. Planning a session, 3. Setting up the room, 4. Getting packed, 5. Breaking the ice, 6. Contracting for learning, 7. Working in groups, 8. Delivering lively lectures, 9. Asking beautiful question, 10. Flexing learning styles 11. Observing group behavior, 12. Rallying learning circles, 13. Brewing brainstorms, 14. Directing role-plays, 15. Teaching by demonstration, 16. Inspiring participation, 17. Studying cases, 18. Inviting experts, 19. Learning outside the classroom, 20. Individualizing assignments, 21. Writing in journals, 22. Assessing the course, 23. Giving & receiving feedback, 24. Designing tests & quizzes, 25. Projecting overhead, 26. Flipping charts, and 27. Showing films. Footnotes, bibliography, and index are at the end of the book. The book is well organized and easy to read. It uses large print, bolded headings, bullets, numbered lists, case studies, quotations for emphasis, and illustrates room set-ups. It gives step by step instructions for how to get students involved in learning. It is not only for the beginning teacher, it is also useful for the seasoned teacher to review the book and reflect on how the teacher could teach even better. It is a good reference book for a teacher to use throughout one's teaching career.
