“Teaching middle school students can be and should be challenging and invigorating! This book describes some new strategies that teachers and students alike will enjoy!”
“This book is a great stepping stone for all teachers looking for new ways to connect to today’s middle school students.”
"Teachers buy books hoping to improve instructional strategies in their classroom. The books are read and evaluated with many clever and interesting ideas, but no answers for why the ideas work, or how to adapt them in their classroom. U-Turn Teaching is different. It provides clear and concise strategies and insight as to why they work. I watched Jenn as she studied brain based learning. Her classroom became a hive of renewed enthusiasm as she embraced the knowledge she presents in this book. This book will challenge you and renew your passion for teaching.
"If you truly believe the number one factor affecting student achievement is the teacher, then you must also recognize the critical importance of continuing to enhance professional practice. U-Turn Teaching will become the guidebook for educators looking to boost student engagement through intrinsically motivating strategies. The utilization of U-Turn strategies will further unlock the potential in every student. The development of a true classroom community will increase student achievement and subsequently decrease disruptive behavior.
"Taken straight from the daily life of the students, I felt instantly immersed into the classroom. Chocked full of vignettes, the authors help the reader visualize the interactive environment, which leads to easy implementation. This book taught me techniques I did not learn in college, and thus, once applied, allowed me to start my teaching endeavor in the right direction. This is a great how-to book I will continue to come back to time and time again."
