With the wisdom of a seasoned educator, Ken Coley has masterfully crafted a “must-read” resource for those tasked with teaching students. In addition to offering numerous suggestions for lesson presentation and lesson application, Coley examines the steps necessary for the teenage mind to retain and assimilate new instruction. What helps to set this book apart is the attention given to the way the facilitator/teacher is interacting with the lesson’s content.
