This could be considered the teachers bible because it is jammed packed with many engaging and practical classroom activities Many cool ideas are centered on student skills like debating, discussion, comparing, contrasting, interpreting complex text, group work, essay writing, and I purchased this book because I have followed Russel Tarr for sometime and have used many of his teacher s tools on his website Classtools.net Like Classtools.net, this book doesn t disappoint and very useful on day 1. I didn t know what to expect from the book but it has exceeded any expectations I had It is enjoyable to read not like a scholarly thesis paper, but in simple, easy to follow text that tired History teachers can easily comprehend I have no regrets buying this book and am excited to implement some of the strategies in my classroom. Although I have been teaching for over 20 years, I m always looking for new ideas to spice up my lessons So, after reading the reviews, I decided to check out this book There are some interesting ideas and strategies for both middle and high school classes.I know the author is British, so of course many activities were related to lessons in European history However, it bothered me to find so many lessons about Hitler There is so much to world history than the period of WWII I know I can take a strategy and use it to teach other topics in history, but somehow the examples from the book do not inspire me to think of other applications.Maybe I should check out Volume Two or maybe another book.
