“If you like the work of John Hattie, Carol S. Dweck, Mike Schmoker, or Grant Wiggins and Jay McTighe, you’re going to love this text. As a classroom teacher, I can say that there are so many practical nuggets and implementable strategies here that teachers of all grades can use. As a consultant and instructional coach, I can say that Pandolpho’s book should be required reading for all teachers and administrators who care about improving learning. And as an education writer, I can say I wish I’d written this book. It gets at the essence of why great teachers are the ones that make us feel safe, challenged, and worthy. This is a book bursting with ideas and heart.”
