After publishing the New York Times best seller The Essential 55, award-winning teacher Ron Clark took his rules on the road and traveled to schools and districts in 49 states. He met amazing teachers, administrators, students, parents, all kinds of people involved in bringing up great kids. In the best of these people, he noticed the same qualities that he'd observed in so many of the teachers, children, and parents he'd worked with during his time teaching in North Carolina and Harlem. These are the qualities he describes in The Excellent 11.Ron Clark pinpoints what it takes to make a great student and shows that the qualities apply to both educating children and becoming a great teacher or parent. You'll find out what the characteristics are, why they work, and how you can incorporate them into your classroom, home, and life.
As he did with The Essential 55, Ron has filled this book with hundreds of suggestions, stories, and wonderfully funny anecdotes. You'll be smiling as you read and finding the inspiration to change lives, one student at a time.
"Advice that all teachers, but especially inexperienced ones, will find valuable and thought provoking." (Publishers Weekly)

The Excellent 11
Not realistic for the modern day teacher
Administrations are enforcing stricter guidelines for what teachers can do with their students and their classrooms. Some of these "out of the box" ideas are fun and great, but my principal would never let us paint our own walls or furniture. I would use some of his ideas, but very few.
