The Active Classroom Field Book Reviews


"Easy to read and even easier to begin today to incorporate, this book is packed with ideas on how to let the students do the learning while the teacher guides them. The real-life vignettes included bring even more clarity to each concept, allowing the reader to experience the vitality each will bring to the classroom. I hope every educator in America will read this book and take from it to improve the teaching and learning process for all of our students and teachers." -- William Richard Hall, Jr., Principal
"Ron Nash has synthesized the best research today on making students active participants in their own learning. This would also be an excellent book for a school to read, discuss, and put into practice as a professional development opportunity. This book shows teachers how to plan their play, then play their plan." -- Roberta E. Glaser, Retired Assistant Superintendent
"Nash's book should be a required reading for all teachers and administrators, new and experienced. It provides a road map that guides teachers and administrators with educating today's youth. Fabulous!" -- Monica Uphoff, Director of Assessment and Accountability
"Every teacher keeps two or three books for constant reference while planning units and designing lessons-this is one of those books! The Active Classroom Field Book provides field-tested strategies for engaging students in learning disguised as fun! It's been well-documented that movement is related to cognition, and Nash capitalizes on this idea with the strategies and actual classroom examples that will have your students standing up to cheer!" -- Jennifer Sinsel, Gifted Facilitator
