Professional Book Reviews

Professional Book Reviews are key to having a library of materials in your hands to help build student achievement, promote richer teaching techniques and further develop self-reflection skills.

I have read thousands of books through my years and have found that many are "fluff" - but a few gems that I would never want to teach without!

This list is to help you find high content, great books to promote your learning and reflections on teaching.

I have included fiction and non-fiction titles. Some are very technical, and yet others will just make you laugh and remember why you became a teacher in the first place.

So, before you spend money on a book look it over for yourself and make sure it meets your needs.

At the top of this page are my reviews, and below there are tons of books submitted by other visitors to this page.

I hope they help!
