WIth 20 years under my belt and organization as my middle name I stumbled upon this book
during my summer reading time and all I can say is WOW! I spent August rethinking my "tried
and true" and have continued to implement pieces from this book since school started. As all
of us continue to juggle assessments, common core, and teacher evaluation with the many
responsibilities of this profession, this book helps us keep our focus on what matters most-
The book seems to be written mostly for a primary school audience, and I found myself having to read the book with that in mind. The information on classroom set-up and organization works for teachers K-12, but some routines are probably not necessary in a middle or high school classroom.
Concepts and routines are clearly explained in a systematic and detailed way. Even if you don't use a particular suggestion, the author gives you an appreciation of what you have to think about as you design your own classroom routines.
Overall, I really enjoyed the book and there's a lot that I can use.
