Answering the Call to Teach: A Novel Approach to Effective Classroom Instruction makes the case that effective teaching begins with people who have a sincere calling to teach. The book discusses how children respond more creatively to teachers who have a calling. These teachers are more passionate, more interested in going that “extra” mile for children, and who, by design, encourage other children with the gift to teach to carry the torch. There is more to teaching than purely translating academic concepts to children. Teaching is a vocation. The book creates a framework by which training institutions can use so that our children are getting the best teachers. This is the most effective method in the classroom – the right teacher.
