101 Ways to Make Your Classroom Special by James D. Sutton
Creating a place where significance, teamwork, and spontaneity can sprout and flourish
This title speaks to my whole philosophy of teaching - it's got to be special! It also is great for my lack of attention span. The ideas are presented in short, to the point ideas that can be done immediately. I wasn't expecting to get too many new ideas from this book since I'm a 17 year veteran teacher, but I got so many quick, do-now ideas, and a few affirmations of my everyday practices.
This is what the cover says:
*28 ways to reach out to youngsters, including shy or resistant
*16 ways to help youngsters understand their needs and feelings and support others
*32 ways to encourage youngsters to initiate and complete tasks
*8 ways to introduce students to the 5 powerful principles
*17 ways that youngsters can develop their own special project that improves the lives of others and the environment
*8 ways to finance special projects (bonus)
This is a very good, used book
