Once I discovered that this book was to be used as a model for the evaluation system for teachers in my county, I had to read what the background behind the system was. Although I agree that this should not have been implemented as an evaluation system, the meat of the book describes what all good teachers should be striving toward with our students. The days of solely direct instruction and sitting behind a desk to teach are behind us. Teachers need to be facilitators of our students to guide them toward understanding and not holding their hands every step of the way. By incorporating strategies from the book, teachers can begin to broaden their horizons and better prepare our students for their future, not our past.
