It is said that change is the only constant in our universe, and the schooling system is no exception from this rule. More and more professors and teachers have begun a learning revolution, advocating that present-day students can’t be taught the same way they were decades ago. Young learners have evolved with time’s passing, becoming considerably more creative, more independent, and more impatient to assimilate new things. Therefore, it is a logical consequence that old teaching techniques can’t be applied anymore with the same success as they once were.
Bryan Fiese argues that educators who continue to use the traditional teaching tactics and philosophies are, in fact, on the sure road to failure. The first natural response to Fiese’s claim is that bringing something new to the table, in terms of teaching strategies and theories, is a difficult, tiresome task. However, this isn’t the case, as Bryan Fiese proves in his book, “No Teacher Left Behind.”
This is a guide created specifically for those who feel like they’ve been left behind by the rapid evolution of the educational system. In “No Teacher Left Behind: Keeping Up With and Captivating ‘Generation Next’ in the Classroom,” the author offers several tips and strategies regarding the process of educating this new generation of students – “Generation Next” – who have a wide range of interests, being continuously on the look for something new and engaging. Having studied the process of change that kept intensifying with each generation of learners, Fiese has created “10 Rules of Student Engagement”, one of his successful national seminars part of the No Teacher Left Behind training series. The aim of this seminar is to motivate educators and to provide them efficient methods of engaging their students.
The information provided by Bryan Fiese is both inspirational and motivational. His observations and suggestions are based on the reality of today’s schooling system, aspect which turns “No Teacher Left Behind” into more than just a theoretical approach to teaching. Therefore, any professor or teacher who reads this guide can actually apply Fiese’s techniques and strategies in their day-to-day school-related activity. The program created by Fiese is approved in Texas (through Texas Education Agency ), Arkansas (through Dept of Education and in Kentucky through Department of Education) in offering CPE credits.
A great number of people who have read “No Teacher Left Behind” or who have attended one of Bryan Fiese’s presentations have been positively influenced by his teaching philosophy, describing it in terms such as “engaging,” “humorous,” and “helpful.” You may find “No Teacher Left Behind: Keeping Up With and Captivating ‘Generation Next’ in the Classroom” on the Motivated Teacher site and on Amazon.
