With every day that passes, more and more educators join the ranks of those who actively work to produce a learning revolution. Those professors and teachers rightfully claim that the students of the latter generations can’t be taught the same way they were decades ago. Young learners have become considerably more independent and more creative, thereby, it is only normal that old teaching strategies don’t lead to the same positive outcome as they once did.
In “No Teacher Left Behind: Keeping Up With and Captivating 'Generation Next' in the Classroom," Bryan Fiese argues that educators who cling to traditional teaching tactics and philosophies are bound to fail in. Although coming up with new teaching strategies and theories may seem a difficult, tedious task, Bryan Fiese proves in his book that things don’t have to be so.
Bryan Fiese offers inspirational, motivational information that he has gathered through attentively observing the reality of today’s schooling system. Therefore, “No Teacher Left Behind” isn’t just a theoretical approach to teaching, but a collection of techniques and strategies which can be applied by educators in their day-to-day school-related activity. The focus is on better communicating with the students, engaging and empowering them, so that they will experience learning in a more positive, efficient way. Fiese has created a successful national seminar, part of the No Teacher Left Behind training series, named “10 Rules of Student Engagement.” This seminar provides educators efficient methods of motivating and engaging their students.
“No Teacher Left Behind” is a guide created for those who feel as if they’ve lost the race against the rapid evolution of the educational system. The author offers several tips and strategies regarding the process of educating “Generation Next,” a new generation of students whose wide range of interests and thirst for knowledge have to be met by professors with great didactic skill and passion.
Those who have read “No Teacher Left Behind” or who have attended one of Bryan Fiese’s talks have described his presentation and teaching philosophy in terms such as “engaging,” “humorous,” and “helpful.” This guide is a must-read for all professors and teachers currently working in the educational system. Due to its quality and efficiency, the program was approved in Texas (through Texas Education Agency), Arkansas (through Dept of Education and in Kentucky through Department of Education) in offering CPE credits.
