Praise for The Essential 55 —-
"The winner of the 2001 Disney Teacher of the Year Award presents some
revolutionary ideas for the classroom: manners, industriousness, and
accountability.... [Ron's] rules go beyond simple politeness: they
promote respect for self and others, and help foster a mature and
responsible way of living in the world.... [H]is cogent explanations
about why he created his rules and his closing tips on dealing with
parents and children offer plenty of ideas and much-needed
support...this book is a definite winner... Clark's slim but valuable
volume will make a welcome addition to any teacher's library."
—Publishers Weekly, -
"Ron Clark's approach to classroom management is clearly a three-legged
stool made of high expectations, an unmistakable belief that children
can succeed, and a support system that makes students want to do the
right thing. All three ingredients are a must for the magical recipe we
see in this book."
