User Review  - Emily Menough - Goodreads

Interesting and very useful book for pre-service or first-year teachers. My only somewhat damning issue was the constant restatement of previously used quotes. Read full review

This was pretty helpful, but not super organized. I think I'll take a lot of the advice with me as I continue teaching. Read full review

User Review  - Adrienne - Goodreads

I'll admit I skimmed this book, because it was written in a way that enabled me to do so. Some interesting ideas. It's hard to put into practice some of the things these students ask for though. I'll ... Read full review

User Review  - Juliette - Goodreads

I read this right before starting a new teaching job at a charter school. It helped me feel less nervous. I love the idea of having students fill out a survey about their lives during the first week of school (or their first week in a class)to help build connections. Read full review

I had to return this to the library so I did not get to finish. What I read was hit and miss but it did have some great teaching advice from kids in high school and from the author. I would definitely give this a closer read if I were teaching in high school. Read full review

User Review  - Laurie - Goodreads

User Review  - Ryan - Goodreads

Okay, fine, only read 90% of this. About 20% too much, really. If I could give 2.5, I would. If you get this, and you're new to teaching stuff, consider this as something like 1/2 of the story. There certainly is NOT enough student accountability in here. The pendulum swings too far to one side. Read full review

Insightful feedback from students. A very quick read that could prove useful to teachers who need some perspective. Read full review

At my age I don't often have assigned reading, but I teach at a High School and the principal wanted us all to read this book. I got a lot out of it. Read full review
