BOOK: Teach like your hair’s on fire

51fyvsdqg6l_sl500_aa240_I’m currently reading “Teach like your hair’s on fire: the methods and madness inside room 56” by Rafe Esquith.  Rafe teaches in inner city LA and has students who have made significant gains.  He has the students read literary classics and perform Shakespeare.  Rafe has received many awards and recognitions for his work.  Here’s an NPR story about his work.
