Teaching: It's Harder Than It Looks

by Gerry Dee

Doubleday Canada | October 23, 2012 | Kobo Edition (eBook)

Teaching: It's Harder Than It Looks is rated 5 out of 5 by 1.

Gerry Dee is a rising comic star whose humour has been compared to Bill Cosby's. He spent ten years working as a teacher and survived (barely) to tell his tales. Told from the honest point-of-view of a not-so-good, often-very-bad public school teacher--the kind who teaches hungover (and lies about it), loses his students' exams (and lies about it), and stages an impromptu baseball game in the middle of history class just to kill some time, Teaching: It's Harder Than It Looks is Mr. D at his best.

This book collects Gerry's funniest anecdotes about teaching, about students and about their parents. As Gerry's ode to school life, it's sure to bring back a memory or two, whether you were the teacher's pet or the class clown. Throughout, he offers tongue-in-cheek "Teacher Tips and Tricks," uncomfortable notes to parents, awkward report cards and all manner of memorabilia of school days.

He's extremely funny, on the page as well as in person, and he's the kind of personality who will reach out beyond his own core comedy audience to a broad demographic of educators, parents and students who relate to his humour and experiences.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Hilarious I think this book is so great. I want to buy it for my dad and my cousin. I laughed out more than a few times. I couldn't put it down. The beginnings of chapters always get a laugh because they are an image of a chalk board with things written and crosses out. I makes me laugh that his current job on CBC's Mr. D, combines both his teaching carrier and comedic past.
