This last year I read Teach Like a Pirate by Dave Burgess. I appreciated the read and thought Burgess made some great points about engagement. I don't believe my job is to entertain my students, but I do believe in engaging them.
I want to take Burgess into my classroom with me, so I created a document for my lesson plan binder. I included his pirate acronym and some of my favorite quotes from the book. Please grab a copy by clicking on the graphic and then read his book if you haven't already.
