This is aimed at teachers. I’m not talking about only math teachers or history teachers or even (heaven forbid) bagpipe teachers- it’s aimed at anyone who wants to get better at teaching. Furthermore the author uses the teaching methods from nearly every type of teacher and shows how they work together and why they’re efficient and motivational.
The greatest point of this book, however, was the personal connection I made with the author. He takes his own experiences- the failures and successes- and shares them as learning experiences filled with honesty. They were shared appropriately, as one would expect, but they really helped the book to become a greater level of excellence as far as quality and enjoyability goes.
All in all, this one holds my recommendation. It has been a while since I have been able to read such a well-written motivational book.
With all the controversy about educational techniques moving toward making the devices of computers and tables the centrum of the system, Brent presents a book that is not only fascinating in its concepts but is also entertaining to read. His concepts of how to involve students in the learning process are magnetic and though he lists the techniques as being 21 in number, each page of this easy to read and digest book is overflowing with ideas that will appeal to the minds of students wherever his ideas are utilized.
But to encourage people to purchase and read and incorporate this book in their teaching techniques, a list of his 21 chapters will provide a hint at what is inside: A Song's Hook, The Art of Storytelling, It's All Fun and Games, The Hidden Curriculum, Teach a Child to Fish, Places They've Never Been, Singers Actors and Comedians, Why Do You Teach, Marketing Your Lessons, Riddles and Randomness, An Ounce of Prevention, Roller Coaster Lessons, Inflection Improves Reflection, Running a Marathon, Variety n Your Diet, Justifying Their Education, Riding the Wave, The Grass Isn't Always Greener, Flipping Your Class, and Who Was Your Favorite Teacher?
Secrets aplenty, here, and if only our teachers would spend the hour or two reading this book, they would feel empowered instead of defeated, and their students would surely learn more. Excellent Resource. Grady Harp, January 15
