Teach Like Your Hair's On Fire

From teaching in the classrooms of inner-city Los Angeles to being the only teacher to receive the President's National Medal of the Arts, Rafe Esquith knows how to get students excited about Shakespeare and Algebra. In a book that gives details into the workings of his own classroom and with motivational tips for other teachers, Teach Like Your Hair's On Fire (Viking Press), Esquith proves exactly why he's been praised by both Oprah Winfrey and the Dalai Lama. Also joining the conversation is Michael York, who has taught several of Esquith's classes.
