"Every educator needs to read this book. It successfully provides
teachers with a recipe that can be used in any classroom, any
content, [and] any grade-level to teach people. Teaching is an art,
and the author masterfully unlocks the secrets of a successful
teacher." - Cheryl K. Dick, elementary school teacher, Nixa R-II

Impact Teaching Strategies] to the world children live in today
enabled me to better understand why we need to change the way we
think about the instruction we deliver. These high impact-teaching

and students face each day."
