Editorial Reviews

Danny Mc Pherson
"This book is a priceless tool not only for teachers, but also for mentors and administrators who responsibilities are to provide professional growth."
CHOICE, June 2002 - June 2002 CHOICE
"For those seeking practical activities that have been tested in actual high school classrooms, Stone’s book is just what the teacher ordered. Written in conversational style by award-winning teachers, this book does what the Internet and discipline-specific teachers’ organizations fail to do: it consolidates exemplary teaching practices on diverse topics from various academic fields into one easy-to-read resource."
Letitia Abram
"This book will be very helpful to new teachers and may motivate experienced teachers to expand their craft. It would be a useful addition to any high school professional collection, as it offers practical, down-to-earth advice, while highlighting innovative and exciting teaching methods. The state standards correlation sections are particularly beneficial."
