From the Author

I have been traveling across the country delivering my passionate and inspirational message about how to improve education for both students and teachers. This book is based on the complete Teach Like a PIRATE system that I have developed to help teachers become wildly engaging in the classroom and more fulfilled in their profession. It not only includes the entire Teach like a PIRATE system that has left audiences of educators unbelievably fired up, motivated, and ready to tackle the world, but also includes a comprehensive section on exactly how to craft and design lessons that are irresistible to students. The book includes over 30 hooks and 170 brainstorming questions that have been specially designed to skyrocket your creativity. The final section of the book is an uplifting guide created to help you overcome all of the obstacles and resistance that you will face on your voyage. I can't tell you how many teachers have come up after my presentations and said, "You should write a book." Well, here it is!  --This text refers to the paperback edition.
