Book Description Penguin Putnam Inc. Paperback. Book Condition: new. BRAND NEW, Lighting Their Fires: How Parents and Teachers Can Raise Extraordinary Kids in a Mixed-Up, Muddled-Up, Shook-Up World, Rafe Esquith, One of America's most celebrated educators teaches parents how to create extraordinary children-in the classroom and beyond In his bestselling book, "Teach Like Your Hair's on Fire," readers were introduced to Rafe Esquith and his extraordinary students in Hobart Elementary School's Room 56. Using his amazing and inspiring classroom techniques, Esquith has helped thousands of children learn to maximize their potential. In "Lighting Their Fires," Esquith shows that children aren't born extraordinary; they become that way as a result of parents and teachers who instill values that serve them not just in school, but for the rest of their lives. Framed by a class trip to a major league baseball game, "Lighting Their Fires" moves inning by inning through concepts that help children build character and develop enriching lives. Whether he is highlighting the importance of time management or offering a step-by-step discussion of how children can become good decision makers, Esquith shows how parents can equip their kids with all the tools they need to find success and have fun in the process. Using examples from classic films and great books, he stresses the value of sacrifice, the importance of staying true to oneself, and the danger that television can pose to growing young minds. "Lighting Their Fires" is that rarest of education books: one that explains not just how to make our children great students, but how to make them thoughtful and honorable people.
