This book is a MUST HAVE not only for educators, but for parents, care givers, or anyone else who works with children. I was surprised to find that mixed in with the "55" lessons are humorous, and inspiring stories of Ron Clark's experience. It has truly been enlightening. I'm giving copies of this to everyone I know. And I can't tell you how many children I've met that I WISH had been taught half of these essentials!!
This is a collection of the effective rules that Ron clark used to become an extraordinary teacher. It's mostly about manners and respecting self and others. I've taught school for more than 20 years and have put into practice many of Ron Clark's ideas long before he compiled them into this book. The book would be good for beginning teachers, especially.
This book really has some incredibly helpful tips for new teachers. While some of the rules are quite specific, the overall effect is one that helps you establish strong classroom management skills. Clark blends unconditional love with high expectations, which is the goal of every teacher. I suggest you check this book out if you are new to the world of education, or if you want to brush up on your classroom management skills.
This book was very practical. He spoke to the children in every day terms that made sense...common sense that is.
Great teaching ideas and concepts. This is written by the guy featured on The Ron Clark Story starring Matthew Perry. Lots of anecdotes and examples from his experiences.
