Editorial Reviews

Jan Griffin
This is an excellent book to use as a quick reference to help brainstorm creative ideas to inspire students.
Caryl Thomason
I enjoyed the fun conversational style of writing, the sense of humor, but also well thought out structure, thorough planning, and that everything was linked to academic improvement.
Gerald N. Tirozzi
Contrary to popular belief, school can be fun. Frank Sennett's motivational stunts provide examples that make learning an enjoyable experience. These humorous suggestions challenge and encourage students to succeed. Principals can choose a stunt level that they are comfortable with and go from there. Let the adventure begin!
Bill Cecil
Hard work is the engine that drives my students to success, but it is the fun we have together that fuels the tank. 101 Stunts for Principals to Inspire Student Achievement is the fuel that will help power my students to even higher levels of achievement.
