Review

"Each teacher must have a toolkit of time-tested strategies that are effective with all types of students. Teaching Outside the Box is the unique resource that also acknowledges the importance of each teacher’s personal attitudes and beliefs about teaching. I am recommending this book to every teacher I know!"
--Gayle Robertson Jones, Safe and Drug-Free School Coordinator, Oklahoma State Department of Education

"LouAnne Johnson is an exceptional teacher who is unafraid to grapple with the untidy human realities of teaching and learning, and who is willing to share the secrets of her success with others. Teaching Outside the Box offers a wealth of important questions and answers that all teachers should seriously think about."
--Edward Pajak, director, graduate education, Johns Hopkins University

"As a student, I wish all teachers would read this book. If they put these strategies to use, school would be more fun. Teaching Outside the Box shows how you can be an awesome teacher if you just use some common sense, a little creativity, and a lot of caring."
--Liana Carsner, age 11, Tipp City, Ohio

5.0 out of 5 stars Something for everyone! July 31 2007
Format:Paperback
This book is amazing!
I have been teaching for 12 years and I wish I had seen this book sooner. It has many great ideas that I have started to use. I have also found myself feeding off of some of her ideas. This book covers a wide range of topics. Yes, some of it is "common sense" but it also introduces new ideas and ways of approaching teaching and student behaviour. Best of all, this is a practical book based on years of experience! It is not theoretical. You can use the ideas tomorrow in your class! I highly recommend it!
