"Teaching is not a lost art, but the regard for it is a lost tradition." Jacques Barzun's admonition is over a half a century old, but nowadays it seems more pertinent than ever. Thus, with its upbeat advice for educators, Real Talk for Real Teachers arrives at an optimum time. Rafe Esquith, its author, possesses perfect credentials: The author of the viral hit Teach Like Your Hair's on Fire is the only classroom teacher to have received the National Medal of the Arts. His strategies to reenergize teachers work because, like his teaching methods, they are grounded in decision-making techniques, not mind-numbing memorization. A perfect primer for dealing with teaching adversity—inside or outside the classroom.
