Description:

This unique book is a practical guide for educators who want to maximize their effectiveness in the classroom. This book stresses the importance of teachers creating the maximum impact on their students in the limited time they have available. It also covers the skills, techniques, and concepts classroom teachers can use to have more impact on their students. It addresses the global picture, and also focuses on smaller, high priority details, such as Question-Detail-Question, Vocal Italics, and Specify the Response. While broad in range, each idea is presented through the use of practical, real-life examples, making it a user-friendly book. For pre-service and in-service educators.
