Industry Reviews

Great Teaching offers a compass for teachers seeking direction, reorientation, and renewal. DiGiulio strips away the distractions and has put together an exceedingly readable, valuable, and affirming guide for preservice and classroom teachers to reflect upon their practice. -- Alan Canestrari, Assistant Professor of Education
Finally . . . a forthright, down-to-earth look at what is really important in our schools and in our society: great teachers and great teaching! -- Marilyn Page, Social Studies Education/Curriculum and Instruction
Great Teaching is packed with tips that speak directly to the nitty gritty reality of classrooms, helping teachers to be skillful and thoughtful in creating conditions for the teaching-learning compact. -- Susan Ohanian, Senior Fellow
Finally! Someone who acknowledges the vital skills that good teachers possess. We need this type of acknowledgment more often. -- Diane Wolfe, Special Education Teacher Trainer
Bravo! This is a true educator's handbook. This book finally puts in print what is a quality teacher, providing quality education. This should be the Bible for every educator's library! -- Pricilla Fisk, Interim Acting Assistant Principal
Amid the `high-stakes' climate of public education today, DiGiulio's gem of a book reminds us of far more important outcomes than politicized test scores. Plain and simple, the book resonates with common sense. -- Gregg Humphrey, Director of Elementary Education
