Reviews by users of Creating the Dynamic Classroom:
“I really like that this book is written in such easy to understand language, and is not convoluted with too much educational jargon; strange as it sounds for an educator’s resource, it makes it a first choice for a straight answer to a specific question. I like the way it is divided up into very clear chapters that concentrate on specific areas of need for a new teacher.”--Megan McRae, OCT, TDSB, Owen PS
“Overall, this book is great and has been a great guide for me. I often refer to it, even after teaching for a few years. I often read it to get back into teaching after each summer. It truly has been a support for my teaching. This book has really been my security blanket going into my first year of teaching but has continued to help me throughout the years.”--Shannon Ostilly, Henderson Ave. PS, York Region District School Board
