This book is at once a battle cry and a manual for teachers who feel disrespected, disenfranchised, and displeased with the profession. The Michaela Community School in Wembley, London, UK is making waves across the globe for its commitment to disciplined, coordinated teaching. With a renewed focus on explicit knowledge, self-quizzing, and the regimentation of discipline, Michaela teachers reflect on what's worked for them as they've set out to start a revolutionary school. Not only does the school hold fast to the belief that "teachers should be able to teach and students should be able to learn," but it also emphasizes that reading happens in all subjects, from math, to art, to French. This book, with its interleaving chapters on discipline, reading comprehension, focus on explicit knowlege instruction, kindness, and competition, renewed my vigor for the profession.
