  1. Deanna Daly

    I use this book regularly! I teach at a title 1 school and have seen some of my most challenging classes turn around from using Responsive Classroom techniques. This book is easy to use and well written. It pairs really well with the workbook for special area teachers. Highly recommend

  2. Susan Hersh

    Routines, expectations, interactions will be clearer and more enjoyable for all!

    I am using his book for my teacher candidates to teach them how to incorporate the principles of a Responsive Classroom while integrating elements of PE , Fine Arts and Music into their lesson planning and doing. This is one book my students buy and keep for future use!
