Bernie Schein is a fire-carrier and a bliss-follower. He has altered almost every life he has touched with his light. --Anne Rivers Siddon, author of Off Season

This book is compelling, not just because Bernie knows these kids so well, but because he is so good at putting into words what they think and feel and say. --Frank Pittman, author of Grow Up!

Impressive He listens. -- Newsweek

I can't tell you how long it's been since I've read a book on a subject as boring as education and laughed as hard as I have reading this one. Author Bernie Schein has many decades of experience in the classroom, and doesn't mind sharing a few opinions on the modern testing culture, nonsensical political agendas, and interpretation of contemporary lit. He is blunt, profane, brilliant and loving; a strange mixture of Lenny Bruce and Albert Schweitzer. Above all, he is a teacher in the old-fashion sense of the word (and to my mind, a modern American hero.) He is absolutely dedicated to awakening his student's reasoning abilities and instilling in them the joys (and pitfalls) of living in community, and having the courage to actually feel. Recommended reading for parents, grandparents and teachers of any stripe, particularly college of education students who have never been in charge of a class room. For them, it is mandatory reading and really, just hugely entertaining. --Janis Owens, author of My Brother Michael

If Holden Caulfield Were In My Classroom: Inspiring Love, Creativity and Intelligence in Middle School Students by Bernie Schein is one of the most astonishing books on teaching that I have seen in my 50 years of reading education books. This absolutely remarkable teacher of middle school students brings out the real feelings and emotions of students to create authentic people and in the process a classroom of vitality and greater learning. This book will take you inside the lives of adolescents, their fears, hopes, jealousies, dreams and inner selves. He also uses class meeting, trials and the core curriculum as a progressive educator. Every teacher at every level would gain from this engaging, readable book. --Wayne Jennings, chairman of the board of International Association for Learning Alternatives

Bernie Schein has spent days, months, and school years of his life among American middle schoolers in a major Southern city. A little-understood and vaguely feared tribe, these hip, smart, middle-class suburban children have allowed their English teacher access to the secrets of their lives. He, in turn, has accepted their confidences with humanity, with humor, and with compassion. He now shares his glimpse into this remarkable world with a uniquely compelling book: a handy guide for interested on-lookers, an eye-opener for parents. Plus it s a terrific read. --Melissa Fay Greene, author of There Is No Me Without You"

Bernie Schein delivers a powerful message of hope for the youth and families of America. --Mark Rosenberg, former U.S. Assistant Surgeon General"

Bernie Schein is a genius the best teacher I have ever seen. --Pat Conroy, bestselling author of The Water Is Wide"

This is the creative process, the stuff of art Has exuberantly blazed new trails in education. --Atlanta Journal-Constitution"

Impressive He listens. -- Newsweek"

With this bold, intimate story about the power of love, authenticity, and caring to ignite real education, Bernie Schein offers us a front row seat in his classroom if we can stand the heat. And Schein s formula is so simple: He midwives the innate wisdom and goodness of his students by risking to be himself and making it safe for them to do the same. Every teacher in America should read this book. --Chris Mercogliano, author of Making It Up As We Go Along, Teaching the Restless, How to Grow a School, and In Defense of Childhood"

Schein helped start and for many years taught at Paideia School, a private school in Atlanta. He was previously the principal at three different schools and has been an educational consultant throughout his career. Schein here details his interactions with several of his students, highlighting his unique method of teaching he s able to draw out students true emotions, what they re most afraid to tell anyone, and he explains how doing that liberates them and improves their academic performance. Schein believes his methods will work in any school, but they will be harder to follow in public schools owing to less flexible curriculum, time constraints, risk of parental complaints (Schein s students openly discuss sexual issues), and other controls put on public school teachers. There is no doubt that Schein s methods have merit. Teachers should have access to this book to consider adapting Schein s style of teaching to improve their own students performance. Recommended for most public and academic libraries. --Terry Christner, Hutchinson P.L., KS, Library Journal"

Reseña del editor:

By the time Bernie Shein's students arrive in his middle-school classroom, they are little more than a gaggle of defense mechanisms, needing to rediscover who they are. His goal is to help them with this joyous and difficult endeavor. Through stories from his classroom, this book shows readers how he does it.
