Inspiring Active Learning: A Handbook for Teachers by Merrill Harmin

In this book,Merrill Harmin has gathered practical commonsense strategies many teachers have successfully used to help students become active,responsible learners. In general, these strategies are centered on mutual respect, not bossiness; collaboration, no isolation; commitment to learning, not fear of failure; and the dignitiy of all, not praise or rewards for a few.

Inspiring Learning is a can-do book. It shows teachers how to turn students on to learning and how to get them working more diligently ,willingly,and intelligently each day. Written by a teacher committed to inspiring excellence, this book is a valuable addition to any teacher's professional libary.
