In The Press

"Education is a noisy world of standardized testing and pressures to be all things to all people while seeming to please no one. Consequently, many teachers stick with what they know and teach traditionally, just as they were taught.  Even if they suspect they shouldn’t, they often feel they don’t have the tools to teach any other way. In a very readable and practical how-to book, Dr. Murawski and Ms. Scott have mined researched and do-able strategies from quality educators. They first describe the realities of teaching and learning today, tell us how kids learn now, caution us about what not to do and then tell us how to do it. They do the best thing…They give us the teaching tools that enable kids to learn."
