Teaching on a tightrope : the diverse roles of a great teacher by Jack Zevin( )

8 editions published in 2010 in English and held by 519 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Teaching on a Tightrope offers those seeking to play the teacher's role a way of thinking about the major components of teaching.

Creative teaching for all : in the box, out of the box, and off the walls by Jack Zevin( Book )

5 editions published in 2013 in English and held by 328 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Read Creative Teaching for All as an antidote to rapidly growing pressures for quick and easy teacher results, and constant evaluations. Employ creative ideas to resist teaching to the (usually factual) test, and to the many choking rules, standards, cores, and state regulations that strangle motivation and destroy experimentation. Reclaim teacher control of curriculum design and instructional methods across all fields by boldly going 'outside', even off the walls, where teachers have lived happier lives before the invention of rubrics and rules. Become the truly creative teacher to which you have aspired! Highlights of the book: explores and expands opportunities for engaging student conversation and ideas; adds variety and depth to your teaching methods; hone questioning and critical thinking skills; move from lower to higher levels; and reinvent instruction at home, work, or in classrooms as places of imagination and enjoyment."--Publisher's description
