The book includes self-assessment checklist similar to those the author employed in his successful Positive Classroom Management, (Corwin Press 1999) which focus on timesaving by distilling a teacher's workload down to the critical, most effective approaches to classroom instruction. The book also employs an 8-step framework to define good teaching skills (Preparation, Attention, Clarity, Feedback, Monitoring, Questioning, Summarizing, and Reflection).
