"When was the last time your students got excited about worksheets? Never! That's because worksheets don't work, at least not when it comes to instilling a love for learning. In The Wild Card, Wade and Hope King challenge, equip, and emPOWER you to create lessons that bring light (not dread) to your students' eyes. The activities and lesson ideas in this book can be adapted for different subjects and grade levels, and most importantly, will have your students running to get into your class!

This book will encourage you to be a better teacher and to engage your students in high-quality instruction. Their insight to education inspire you to stretch your students and yourself, and the personal stories they share will make you smile as you turn the pages. Wade and Hope challenge us to see students as individuals with untapped potential and to look beyond the sum of their clothes, houses, and parent incomes. If you need a jumpstart in your classroom this is the perfect book for you as it offers ideas and excitement to engage your students."
--Gerry Brooks, elementary principal and social media educator personality
"If you are an educator that desires to turn up the energy and engagement level of your class, this book is for you! If that desire isn't in you, it will be when you read this book! These pages are full of real-life stories that will pull you in and challenge you to your core. You will be motivated, inspired, and encouraged. Most of all, this book will help you quiet that little voice that tries to steal the joy out of shaping future generations through education."
--Amy Lemons, educator and blogger
