Ditch That Textbook: Free Your Teaching and Revolutionize Your Classroom


A book which aims at pushing out old, pedestrian teaching and learning practices for new ones, Ditch That Textbook: Free Your Teaching and Revolutionize Your Classroom is one that empowers teachers with new and liberating ideas. Through the book, author and teacher Matt Miller introduces his 5 teaching practices which are- different, innovate, tech-laden, creative and hands-on while elaborating upon them.

He provides us with the options to choose and incorporate teaching methods that are different while drawing on modifying existing ideas that may be unique in nature. He also advises teachers to innovate and be tech-laden to handle learning online. The author finally encourages teachers to motivate their students to try out things on their own and to receive first-hand experiences on the observations they make through learning.

Published in 2015, the book is packed with practical advice and specific recommendations for tools, and the encouragement teachers need to revolutionise their classes.
