Classrooms that Spark!

Where does Classrooms that Spark!: Recharge and Revive Your Teaching rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

One of the best!

What does Andi Arndt bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

It painted vivid pictures in my head.

Any additional comments?

I prefer listening to books so that I actually finish the book. In this case, I liked it so much I had to find myself a used copy of it to have on hand. Absolutely wonderful! Highly recommend!

Not Worth Your Time or Money

What could have made this a 4 or 5-star listening experience for you?

This is basic knowledge of setting up a classroom but way out of date. It refers to floppy discs, etc. and ways to store computer files. There isn't anything new or revolutionary here.

What do you think your next listen will be?

What character would you cut from Classrooms that Spark!: Recharge and Revive Your Teaching?

I wouldn't promote it at all. The whole book needs to be tossed.

Don't listen unless you live in America

What could have made this a 4 or 5-star listening experience for you?

Only designed for teachers in American schools. Does not apply to other markets therefore irrelevant to my needs.
