Making a Difference in the Classroom: The Reality and Truth of Teaching in Schools Today makes the case that our schools will continue to struggle until we take an honest approach to what we know works in the classroom. This book is a frank discussion about what teachers face and what teacher candidates should know before they enter the classroom. Until we implement an honest approach to our education challenges, our students will continue to fail. Teacher candidates consistently fulfill graduation requirements. Yet, they fail our students. This book provides a refreshing viewpoint as decision-makers hold conversations about changes in methodologies, in pedagogy, and in standard practices of teaching. Making a Difference in the Classroom discusses possible solutions that would evaluate college students to determine if they have what it takes to pursue teaching. It discusses a fundamental scientific flaw of using past data to analyze a fluid system (students) and using the results to extrapolate information for future predictions. With that in mind, it becomes imperative that we move hastily toward viable solutions.

Review:

You may not agree with everything stated in "Making a Difference in the Classroom: The Reality and Truth of Teaching in Schools Today," but once you begin reading it you will not stop until you have finished. Charlese Brown speaks straight forward to individuals thinking about teaching as a career choice. She discusses challenges and possible solutions. This book can be used as an introduction to teaching text for potential teachers.
(Rosalind Pijeaux Hale, Ed.D., Professor, Chair and NCATE Coordinator, Division of Education, Xavier University of Louisiana)

At times frustrating and other times inspiring, this book provides practical advice and insight for teachers new to the profession and current teachers who are thinking seriously about what they are doing and why in the classroom. (H. Richard Milner IV, Associate Professor of Education, Vanderbilt University)
