Review:

"A stimulating read. Confirms so much of what we have been trying to convey to the teachers with whom we work." -- Sue Beeson, Director, CSD "Igniting Student Potential should be on every teacher's must-read list. The book not only tells why teachers should get in tune with their students' natural learning process, but explains how to do so. If teachers have intent to construct the best possible learning environment for their students, this book is an essential tool to help them do it." -- Dee Tadlock, PhD Director, Research & Development "A wonderful guidebook for people moving toward constructivism and for many who are already there." -- Geoffrey Caine, Director "Fosters a refreshing educational discourse of possibility and offers some very useful classroom strategies that work with today's youth." -- Peter P. Grimmett, Director "`Handle with care' should be on the front cover so that the eager teacher uses the book as an inspirational resource, gradually remolding practice and introducing change in appropriate increments. This book might have immediate impact if used first as a discussion starter for small groups of teachers or as a study guide for staff development or 'retreats.' The message of the book, however, goes far beyond strategies for teachers. There are issues here for school administrators, for state-mandated goals and programs, and for teacher education programs. The book certainly deserves consideration by teacher education methods instructors. And since parental involvement is absolutely necessary if any constructive change is to take place, imagine how discussion of this text might perk up a PTA meeting!" -- Roy Bentley, Professor Emeritus "Well organized. I enjoyed the self-talk about bad neural networks and especially liked the brain research in the chapters pertaining to the development of the student." -- Marilee Sprenger, Professional Development Consultant
