“An African proverb states that ‘When the music changes, so does the dance.’ In our highly diverse classrooms, the music has changed, making it an imperative that our teaching (the dance) change as well. LeAnn Nickelsen and Melissa Dickson provide you with all the steps to respond to the variety of moves you need to keep your students dancing to success. They provide you with step-by-step instructions, full of ideas and valuable research to make learning stick. From a fast cha-cha to a more subdued waltz, let Nickelsen and Dickson help you sync your dance to the music!”
“I have no doubt that Nickelsen and Dickson will become the new champions of their own dance, Teaching Like the Stars.”
