So a professor gave me this book as I am about to enter the teaching field. The book is based on the One Minute principles...however in a sentence this is the book. If you use the principles for yourself everyday, you will be a better teacher and it will have positive impacts within your classroom.
It isn't new material just re - written to help education professionals focus their efforts to positively impact schools as a whole.
Having said all that if you have never read any of Dr Johnson's books grab this one and use these easily implemented principles to work in your own life.
I was rather disappointed with this book.
It goes over simply setting goals, looking at them throughout the day, and than assessing your outcomes.
This invaluable book shows how teachers, despite the many difficultiesthey face in today's school systems, can make an important contributionto their students' lives and educations. Johnson and Johnson describehow the use of Goal Setting, Praising, and Recovery reinforcesself-esteem and creates a new kind of learning process that will becomelifelong. The One Minute Teacher reveals simple, positive ways to
Discover and instill the love of learning
Foster success and achievement
Feel more confident and happy
Bring out the best in ourselves and others
Practical, wise, and useful in dozens of everyday situations, The OneMinute Teacher is essential reading for anyone who teaches and anyonewho learns.
Simple, and very inpressionable!
