If you’ve been looking for a no-nonsense book with practical ideas to improve your teaching practice, then Making Your teaching Something Special is a must read. In fact, if you’re in the field of education, this book is a must-read. For the new educator, it will inspire you to think more deliberately and plan the habits you want to develop your craft around. For the veteran teacher, the ideas, suggestions, and real-life anecdotes will reinforce the great things you are already doing, as well as remind you of the essential practices you’ve for some reason “let slide”. Additionally, you will leave each chapter energized, and with a determination to add something new to your teaching habits.
Making Your teaching Something Special is divided into five “Areas”, each with short chapters, which makes the book a nice “pick up, put down, ponder, and plan” endeavor. a bonus that you don’t often see in books for educators. At the end of each “Area” there is a series of questions for educators to discuss and explore, be it for a staff meeting, a study group, or an administrative team meeting.
I really like the discussion questions, and these too will be a valuable resource for those supporting teams and developing the leadership capacity in our team leaders. Hurley colours his very practical and very real situations faced by teachers with great examples and pictures, taking the book beyond being a resource and into the realm of being a very enjoyable read. I really love his writing style and can literally hear him speaking as I am reading.
Another Fantastic offering for all levels of teaching expertise.
