The ideas in this book have helped me spice up my lessons and create a successful learning community. -- Brent Vasicek, Fourth-Grade Teacher A wonderful compilation of practical exercises and strategies designed to get and keep students
interest and attention. Evanski shows how teachers can make their classrooms stimulating places of learning and offers specific ways of gaining the attention of even highly distractible students.
