My "Go-to Book" Linky Party

Teaching in Room 6 is having a linking party on the one teaching resource book you can't live without. I have a library of teaching resource books, like most teachers do. But, the latest book I read for professional development was one of the best books I've read in a long time.

Class Acts: Every Teacher's Guide to Activate Learning (K-8)

This book focusses on improving student learning though effective management skills and active learning. Most veteran teachers will tell you, the best teachers have the best management of their students. The students are engaged and on-task, and there is little down time, even during transitions the students are engaged in learning. I wish this book had been out when I was a beginning teacher! It is one I recommend for all teachers, both veteran and me, because it reminds all of us of the smallest details that go into great management and teaching. This book helped me, and I've been teaching for 15 years. 

There is only Love,
