In over twenty years of working with new teachers, I've reviewed many books written to describe how to teach successfully. These books, even those that tell stories about the students, rarely include the real voices of students. As a result, for too many new teachers, the students are abstracts - not real. In this book, real students speak and give new teachers, even veteran teachers, and insights into how to create a classroom that works for both students and teachers. Kids need to be heard and listened to before a teacher can be successful. This book is a must-read for first year teachers or teachers who want to reexamine their teaching practices. -- Kathleen K. Huie, Director of Teacher Development, 1992 Florida Teacher of the Year, Retired
I just finished Transparent Teaching. All of the problems teachers experience, such as handling profanity and discipline, are attacked with clarity and suggestion, with models to improve and to fix. IT WOULD HAVE BEEN SUCH A BLESSING IN MY FIRST YEAR! I would have stayed in teaching. -- Veronica Cronin, writer and photographer
The most influential instructional guides are only valuable from those who have been there, done that. I wish that everyone in public schools really subscribed to the notions-as Keller so effortlessly did in our classes-that the students and their parents are customers, and above all, people. -- Tekisha Roberts, Director of Operations and former student
Transparent Teaching provides exceptional guidance for teachers in how to shape the image they present to their students. It uses a classroom-validated method and means to avoid micro-managing, help students reach autonomy, and instill mutual trust. That is what I took from our classes, and this book is the key to inviting students to feel that same acceptance and engagement in the high school classroom."- -- Erin Rohan, attorney and former student
Mutual respect between students and teacher is the heart and soul of Keller's philosophy. The clear respect for her students permeates every facet of the class experience, ultimately resulting in successful teaching and learning. If teachers use these strategies, they will increase their effectiveness tenfold. -- Shawn Fahy, MSW
"It is brilliant. Raw honesty. Clever, applicable, and reflective." -- Maria Mosley, Executive Director, Public Charter School, 33 years in Education
