Inspirational and practical, this book focuses on the quality of teaching and learning in elementary and middle school classrooms and helps teachers and students find more joy, satisfaction, and meaning in their work.

Experienced teacher Steve Reifman defines a quality classroom in reader-friendly terms, explains how to measure quality, and covers the conditions under which all students are empowered to reach their full potential. The author synthesizes key concepts from the fields of education, psychology, management, and personal growth to arrive at the eight essential elements of teaching, including realistic goal setting, assessment-oriented instruction, parent involvement, and teacher leadership. Written in an engaging personal voice and drawing upon the work of experts such as Stephen Covey, Howard Gardner, Ted Sizer, William Glasser, Carol Ann Tomlinson, Alfie Kohn, and Alan Blakenstein, this resource
  • Promotes student motivation and a classroom environment of trust and respect
  • Build higher-level thinking and group problem solving into the curriculum
  • Presents classroom applications, examples, anecdotes, and reproducible pages
  • Features ideas from practicing teaching for putting these essential ideas to work in the classroom
