  • How to apply the "Rules of Rigor" in order to fuse creativity with learning
  • How to become the "Wild Card" that changes the game for your students

Amazing things to think about!!!

I loved this book. This is my first year going into education, and I had no idea of what to think. Through reading this book and working on my Alternative Teacher Certification, I have so many ideas of things I want to implement and I know it will take time but I am looking forward to being in education more than I ever have before!!!

Loved it!

I really liked their ideas and stories. The only part I struggled with were their lists. I had to pull out my Kindle copy and read along with it so that I could keep up.

Just okay

I think the concept of creating engaging lessons is great, but the book was very repetitive and dull.

Amazing Practices for all Teachers

Thank you for writing this book. I felt like I was transported into your classrooms. I am eager to try out many of your amazing suggestions and ideas. Thank you for being vulnerable enough to share your difficulties with your readers. It is comforting to know that every teachers path will have moments where we don’t feel capable. Thank you for all your stories. Your book is engaging and captivating. It is what we all need to be doing in the 21st century classroom. Thank you!

Amazing!

I could not let myself pause this book. What an inspirational read for teachers! I have never felt more excited, passionate, or ready to step into my classroom each day than I did while listening to this book. I love what I do, but this book increased my love for education even more!
