I could not have been more wrong. This book has changed the way I teach, and my students and I are better for it. We've flipped the classroom and I'm never going back. Kudos to the authors for championing an education revolution.
The title of the book is almost misleading. What this book does is provide modern teaching strategies and pedagogy that are designed to make homework almost unnecessary. As a teacher, you're not necessarily "ditching homework" so much as you are using class time more effectively. Matt Miller and Alice Keeler fill the book with great ideas and teaching methods from their own experiences in the classroom and not untested theory. This should be a must read whether you are an administrator, lead teacher or classroom teacher in grades K-12.
