Editorial Reviews

The New York State Theatre Education Association Chronicles
Bottom line: 'This all sounds fun,' you may say, 'but my school lives and dies by accountability and assessment.' Based on his years of experience as a schoolteacher, Mr. Polsky naturally provides sample lesson plans and exams in the practical appendices….
Milton Polsky offers so much in the service of his central point: 'Creativity is elaborated insight.' Celebrating Your School Namesake provides the scaffolding you and your students need to build an understanding higher and wider than traditional disciplines allow.
New York Teacher
Polsky makes clear that his book is not intended to be an exercise in hero worship. Instead it is tips on how to fuse, 'art, dance, music, writing, and role-playing' in creating programs across the curriculum.
H. Carl McCall
Perhaps originally intended to be merely a curricula guide, Celebrate Your School Namesake has become a model for learning that is creative, cooperative, and engaging….All too often, a school groundbreaking is the last time we remember its namesake. The people whose achievements merit a school naming certainly deserve to be celebrated by the generations of students that follow….
Thanks to Milton Polsky, school children everywhere will have an opportunity to celebrate such people while also discovering the joys of learning.
