6 of 6 people found the following review helpful By Grégoire on Dec 3 2005
This book is absolutely phenomenal. Not only does it recognize the complexity of our job as a teacher but it generously gives us many strategies to ensure and enhance our students' learning. Another one of Barry Bennett's practical and enriching books. With more teachers using strategies such as the ones explained in this book, boys as well as girls would be turned on by learning!All teachers must have this book on their shelf to consult and use regularly!

I found this book to be easy to read and very colorful: the authors are doing what they say in using brain based learning. However, "cdl_ca" ships the book from the US and the courier may charge a brokerage fee to handle the GST. In my case, UPS charged CAD $29.55 (plus GST) to collect GST of CAD$ 2.66 (on the value of the book).

Superb Teaching Resource Feb. 4 2003
By A Customer - Published on Amazon.com
This book provides both the novice and seasoned teacher with a great deal of engaging and innovative teaching strategies. It is a handbook that all teachers in all domains can use to increase concept attainment. The sample lessons are easily modified to meet the needs of all learners. Beyond Monet would be a wise investment for any teacher.

Cooperative Learning April 9 2007
By Samantha Marshall - Published on Amazon.com
This book is a *must have* for any teacher interested in using cooperative learning techniques effectively. It explains the concepts behind effective group work and how to structure groups using Johnson's five elements of cooperative learning. The book covers the use of graphic organisers which can be used in classrooms from pre-primary to year twelve and much, much more....

not really for novices? Dec 31 2010
By still learning - Published on Amazon.com
This was my textbook for a 1 year teacher training program, that I'd entered with a BA but no previous education courses. I found this book very hard to "get into" and to follow, as it assumed a lot of knowledge of industry-specific terms. After gaining more experience in the education field (with what was taught in the course and gained from classroom and workshop experience) it started to make more sense. However, it tries to combine quite a variety of ideas from vague concepts to specific hands-on methods used in specific situations, so it's overwhelming for a beginner, I find.

It is also trying to indelibly impress the fact that teaching isn't just a "formula", but spends too much time and energy explaining everything in the context of the art vs. science / "artful science" metaphor. I feel I could draw my own understanding of the (relatively simple) "artful science" concept without all of the author's poetic endeavors.

It's also quite large and heavy, so while the coil binding allows you to open it to any page (with the cover folded against itself), the pages will tear if you move the book around too much in that position.

This book is a tool for teachers to choose some instructions and apply at classroom. It is great! I think each teacher can have a chance to perform better their class, motivate students to develop critical thinking and decision-making.
