Editorial Reviews

Goodwin and Sommervold are not jumping on the bandwagon of how to recreate education. They are not giving teachers and administrators yet one more thing to do. Instead, they provide fresh insight to what we know already works in educational settings and suggest that educators focus on promoting those elements of success-creativity, critical thinking, and communication skills-with their students. This book will be the one with all the sticky notes and tabs and dog-eared corners-practical information backed by research that teachers will use again and again.
