Editorial Reviews

Review

In this book, real students speak and give new teachers, even veteran teachers, and insights into how to create a classroom that works for both students and teachers. Kids need to be heard and listened to before a teacher can be successful. This book is a must-read for first year teachers or teachers who want to reexamine their teaching practices. (Kathleen K. Huie, Director of Teacher Development, 1992 Florida Teacher of the Year, Retired)

I just finished Transparent Teaching. All of the problems teachers experience, such as handling profanity and discipline, are attacked with clarity and suggestion, with models to improve and to fix. IT WOULD HAVE BEEN SUCH A BLESSING IN MY FIRST YEAR! I would have stayed in teaching. (Veronica Cronin, writer and photographer)

The most influential instructional guides are only valuable from those who have been there, done that. I wish that everyone in public schools really subscribed to the notions—as Keller so effortlessly did in our classes—that the students and their parents are customers, and above all, people. (Tekisha Roberts, Director of Operations and former student)

Transparent Teaching provides exceptional guidance for teachers in how to shape the image they present to their students. It uses a classroom-validated method and means to avoid micro-managing, help students reach autonomy, and instill mutual trust. That is what I took from our classes, and this book is the key to inviting students to feel that same acceptance and engagement in the high school classroom."— (Erin Rohan, attorney and former student)

Mutual respect between students and teacher is the heart and soul of Keller's philosophy. The clear respect for her students permeates every facet of the class experience, ultimately resulting in successful teaching and learning. If teachers use these strategies, they will increase their effectiveness tenfold. (Shawn Fahy, MSW)

"It is brilliant. Raw honesty. Clever, applicable, and reflective." (Maria Mosley, Executive Director, Public Charter School, 33 years in Education)

Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
This book contains many great classroom management ideas that new teachers, especially, could take to heart. The ideal time to read it is during the summer before beginning a teaching assignment. Veteran teachers can gain, too, from a fresh outlook on lesson planning and classroom procedures. I teach Introduction to Education classes at a local community college and am recommending all my students read it!

I am going back to teaching secondary English after taking 10 years off to raise a family. This book was fantastic. From planning the beginning of the school year to dealing with classroom management, Ms. Keller gives a hands-on approach for all the "little" things that throw teachers (and students) off their game. Great book for new, veteran, and in-between teachers like myself.

This book is helpful to both new and veteran teachers. I love how Mindy starts with what to do in the summer and moves through preplanning and into the first days of school. I also enjoy how former students contribute to the conversation making the strategies that much more concrete as to why they are effective. A must read for teachers no matter how many years of teaching!
