Have you ever wondered if the author of some of your textbooks ever actually met a real boy or girl? If so, you will enjoy Ideas That Really Work! Written by a former junior high English teacher, this book is easy to use, easy to understand, often humorous, and always practical. The ideas are classroom tested and really do work.

The book is a potpourri of materials that will make your life easier and it covers a wide range of topics. Just a few of them:
  • writing introductions;
  • understanding plagiarism;
  • using quotation marks correctly;
  • using commercials to teach critical thinking;
  • looking at slang;
  • planning a schoolwide English trivia bowl; and
  • grammar ideas for teachers who hate teaching grammar.

The book is very adaptable and is targeted for grades 7–9, although much of the book can be used with older students as well.
