Buy David Greene's Book!!
I just ordered it last week and it has yet to arrive but I know it will be a great book. Of course I am by noted education advocate David Greene.
"Doing the Right Thing: A Teacher Speaks"
talking about the new book,
For those who do not know who David is, David can be found, here, here, here, and here.
I first met David about 2 years or so ago. I have found David to posess an encyclopedic knowledge of education and teaching. I have sat with David many times in Starbucks and have been regaled with stories of of his almost 40 years of teaching, his passion for education, his foresight into what we can do to fix education, his honesty, and his caring.
I don't think there is one person that Dave won't truly want to help. He has "talked me down" on several occasions and has had me walking away from our meetings feeling better about myself. He does this by being straight with you and talking to you, not at or through you. And this I know we will find in his book.
Dave is our Obi Won Kenobi. Our Clarence. Our Conscience. We're lucky he is on the side of good and not evil.
When I finish the book I and The Crack Team will review it.
