This book isn’t about textbook pedagogy or curriculum. I’ll leave that for the bureaucrats and other educational policy makers. Instead, it will:
- be straight to the point.
- provide you with ideas and tips I wish I had received earlier in my career.
- give you something that you can take away and use immediately in your classroom.
