What is the book about?
Teach like a Pirate, published in 2012, made an immediate splash in education circles I frequent. I have been stalking the #TLAP twitter chats even though I had not read Dave’s book. I was initially interested because of the noticeable lack of “pirate talk.” There was no “matey’s, booty or a single mention of swashbuckling.” This is one that has been sitting on my “to read” list for a while. I am happy I finally did.
The writer, Dave Burgess, breaks the book into three useable parts: explanation or what is needed as an inspired educator, questions to spark creativity and ideas to implement, and then are you brave enough to try it. In each section he relates the questions he has had to personally answer and relates them back to his own life experience.
