Editorial Reviews


Denis' blend of practical application, expertise and humor make this book like few I have ever read. He will teach you how to sneak learning into lessons using regular everyday moments. The cool part is that your students will not even see it coming, but in the end they will be asking for more.
Jon Harper, Assistant Principal, blogger, and host of Bam Radio show My Bad
Holy cow this book is good! Every single teacher should read this. Denis is FUNNY. This book is an easy read, relevant, and will transform your teaching.
Alice Keeler, Author of 50 Things You Can Do With Google Classroom

Denis has truly captured the art of relevant teaching through the lens of the student and passion driven classroom. His anecdotes and examples are timely, witty, and relevant to all cohorts of educators. Whether you are student teacher or days away from retirement, 'Instant Relevance' serves as an invigorating guide for individualizing teaching to create a cohesive and collaborative classroom environment. 
Dani Kennis, High School Special Education Social Studies Teacher and Technology Coach

Do you want what your students learn to resonate with them beyond just the time they spend in class with you? Do you want to bring authenticity into your classroom that gives your content context and meaning? Instant Relevance offers strategies that allow students to make meaningful connections between your curriculum and the real world.
Laura Fleming, Author of Worlds of Making: Best Practices for Establishing a Makerspace for Your School
The teachable moments that are the most memorable often aren't pulled from textbooks or old teaching materials. They're found in our everyday lives -- from TV, social media and pop culture. They're the things we -- and our students -- bump into every day. Denis Sheeran provides key guidance on making the most of these experiences to engage and equip students. When we aren't focused on being relevant to our students' lives, we become less and less valuable to them. This book provides practical ideas you an use in class tomorrow to bring instant relevance to your teaching.
Matt Miller, Google Certified Innovator, World Renowned Speaker, and Author of Ditch That Textbook

After reading Denis Sheeran's "Instant Relevance: Using Today's Experiences to Teach Tomorrow's Lessons", I have begun to think differently. I now look at the day-to-day as a teaching opportunity instead of just passing it by.
Jay Billy, Principal, Slackwood Elementary School, Lawrenceville NJ
Denis Sheeran provides readers with pedagogically sound insight on what math instruction should look like in the year 2016. The countless real world examples shared in the book provide readers with a plethora of learning experiences that can be implemented immediately. Readers own professional growth will be elevated from reading Instant Relevance and ultimately impact the success of students.
Brad Currie, Billy Krakower, and Scott Rocco: Founding Partners of Evolving Educators LLC 

Practical. Essential. Humorous. What else do you need? Instant Relevance encapsulates the two most important aspects of teaching that make a classroom successful: relationships among teachers and students as well as making connections to the real world.
Sylwia Denko, Third Grade Teacher
In education, engagement is the key to relevance. And Denis Sheeran's Instant Relevance is packed full of classroom-tested strategies for engaging students in powerful and meaningful ways.
Michael Fenton, Teacher; Lead Instructional Designer, Desmos
