Review quote

"My daughter applied the techniques for learning found in Rich Allen's Green Light Classrooms in a second grade class and was amazed how using mystery in science excited her students. I saw the same excitement in adults learning safety concepts; the class was energized! Even after returning from a break, the class was still discussing what they learned and I knew I'd found a powerful method for teaching. I'll continue to use this valuable resource for my own classes and my daughter will as well!" -- Dave Barber, MS, CIH "This book provides a variety of new approaches, strategies, techniques, concepts, and ideas that teachers can implement in their classroom to increase the educational success of their students." -- Beth Wile, Sixth-Grade Science Teacher "This is a practical and highly engaging book about how to be a highly engaging teacher. In today's world of on-demand entertainment and fast-paced action, the strategies in this book help teachers offer what students need in order to learn." -- Renee Peoples, Fourth-Grade Teacher and Swain County Math Coach
