Class Acts:
Every Teacher's Guide To Activate Learning

This book offers tactics and strategies that teachers can implement immediately in their classrooms. While it is a guide for teachers (and everyone with a stake in student engagement) it is also a fun read because it tells about real peopleŚreal teachers in real situations. But it has a very important purpose: This guide introduces and explores principles of classroom management that directly impact student performanceŚnot in textbook terms, but in practice. "This book reads like a novel!" A reader of Class Acts watches how other teachers have done it, a reader examines tactics and strategies others have used, and a reader explores the nuts and bolts of putting him- or herself into similar situations.
