This book was a letdown for me. I had seen so much buzz about it on Twitter, so I bought a copy to see what all the fuss was about. The main point of the book is to be passionate. Get it? I think that's all well and good, but as a teacher, you need to have content knowledge too.
I thought the titl...

Inspirational in many regards . . . But, sigh . . . I leave this book feeling sad. It feels a bit out-dated and certainly naive. So much of what it talks about: creative hooks, out-of-the-box teaching, critical-thinking building are why I got into teaching. And, it's exactly what I feel is missin...

So much hype surrounds this book, and its been rated highly by many educators whom I respect, so I thought it would be worth a look.
Author Dave Burgess shares a great deal about his teaching practice, and to that end, its a great read. I always love hearing about how other teachers go about their...

I agree with a few of the main points that are the foundation of what Dave does. I agree that great teachers make it look easy, because they work hard, not because it IS easy. I also agree that building rapport, getting to know your students, creating a safe environment and being passionate are a...

Author's tone is condescending and he does not seem to take in to consideration the amount of time we as teachers are forced to be conducting some type of standardized teaching. Furthermore, every day life is not presented in dog-and-pony show fashion so to think every lesson should be structured...

I’m not really certain how to rate this slim how-to guide for teachers by Dave Burgess, social studies teacher and hyperactive wizard. The book’s messages are very important: life lessons are more important than standardized tests, enthusiasm is infectious, and dare to be different — and even cra...

This is not going to be so much of an review of a book, but more of how I have applied the principles to my life. This is a MUST READ. If you have not read this book then you are missing out. This book is taking off like a pirate ship at sea going 50 knots. The buzz online via the #tlap hashtag o...

A few things really stand out in this short book. One is that people say, I could never do what you do because you're creative. By saying that, Burgess says, people let themselves off the hook. They're not willing to put in the hard work that it takes to be creative. Some people have natural incl...

The PIRATE pages were worth the cost of the book right there. Then the questions in the last section to ponder about your own lessons. I have already been asking some of them, but there are others I can start asking easily. (Others I won’t be employing, however, because I’ve gotten away from “ext...
