“This book is essential reading for any teacher who wants students to thrive and succeed and build meaningful, satisfying lives—not just after they finish school, but right now! The authors take you step by step through simple but powerful strategies to help students discover and utilize their own core values, for motivation, inspiration, and fulfilment—both at school and at home. And the great thing is, it won’t just help your students live better lives; it will do the same for you.”
“School is so much more than academic achievement, and Two-for-One Teaching: Connecting Student Values and Instruction makes an important case for why school should address student values while educating each child. This book is an important read for all teachers who are committed to content but often don’t make time for the social-emotional aspect of education. Porosoff and Weinstein provide practical protocols for teachers to use to better empower each student, and the teacher who reads this book will be better armed for it.”

You can never have too many tools in your chest to use with students and adults, and I know this is a book I will keep with me as I again and again try the many ideas shared throughout. I think every middle and high school educator and leader should have this resource, because they’ll fall in love with it.”
