Great book for new teachers

Pros: This book was easy to listen to with lots of good pointers for new teachers, and for elder teachers as well.

There were plenty of examples to help a teacher improve their practice throughout all levels of schooling.

Cons: I wonder why, when the vast majority of teachers are female, the authors chose to use pretty much only sport examples when taking examples outside of teaching.

Also, the narrator referred to tables within the original book which were not available for download. This was disappointing.

Not a legendary book

This book wasn’t for you, but who do you think might enjoy it more?

The book is clearly not aimed at anyone who teaches outside of the United States,

Would you ever listen to anything by David Freeman and William Scheidecker again?

I wouldn't listen to or read anything by these authors again. I have read better and more helpful books on teaching. Furthermore, when I think about my teachers who were legends, many of them did not exhibit the characteristics that this book cites.
