"Johnston's thinking is transformative. He has created a layered effect of ideas and theories that form a solid path to becoming a master in the apprenticeship of children into humanity." - MiddleWeb


"It is brilliant. Just as in "Choice Words," Johnston packs a ton into a small book." - A Year of Reading blog

5.0 von 5 Sternen Thoughtful and Insightful 5. März 2012
Von Bill Gallagher - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Taschenbuch Verifizierter Kauf
Peter Johnston has made a career researching and articulately presenting insights into how to help children grow as readers and develop intellectual curiosity. In Opening Minds he focuses on how the words and state of mind we inhabit can make a real difference in the classroom. For instance, when introducing a spelling test, he asks that we observe the difference between saying, "`Let's see how many words you know' and `Let's see how many words you already know.'" The sentences are only different by one word, "but the "already" suggest that any words the child knows are ahead of expectation and, most important, that there is nothing permanent about what is known and not known."

In Opening Minds, Johnston covers a wide range of issues, from more skillful ways to work with motivating students to ways of developing social intelligence (or, as he calls it, social imagination). Johnston does this in ways that hint at how he hopes others will teach. That is, he never hits us over the head with "shoulds" and "must-dos", but gives examples that help lead us to developing more thoughtful approaches.

I especially liked his chapter on praise. In it he points out how relying heavily on praise (which is a popular approach in this era of self-esteem boosting) has some downsides, such as creating an arms race around what is real praise and what is faint praise -- and ultimately keeps us in an externally-motivated rewards and punishment system. Instead, he gently leads us to see the greater value of taking a real interest in your students work. By asking questions that bring out greater depth, the student learns depth and intellectual probing is most important, and that you genuinely care; all this, without setting up a dynamic that leads the student to look for praise. The work itself becomes the reward. In retrospect this makes obvious sense: in a way, praise can be an easy short cut, while really paying attention and putting yourself in the student's frame of mind takes more work and effort. What I especially liked about this chapter is Johnston got us there in such a gentle way, that I wasn't left with the feeling of "what a dope I'd been in the past." This approach leads by example.

It's hard to imagine a teacher not benefitting from this book, and non-teachers too for that matter. Since we're all kids underneath our adult facade and protective layers, we can communicate more clearly with his gentle but thoughtful approaches.

5.0 von 5 Sternen Love it!! 1. April 2012
Von Courtney P - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Taschenbuch Verifizierter Kauf
I bought his first book, Word Choices and I was amazed at the knowledge. Opening Minds will not let you down. What teachers say and how they say it to their students really affects their learning in the classroom. You could apply this knowledge to parenting too. I'm ready for the next book!!

5.0 von 5 Sternen A MUST READ for all teachers 18. April 2013
Von ScottyMusicTchr - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Taschenbuch Verifizierter Kauf
No matter what subject you teach or grade you teach, you must have this short little book. I read it in one afternoon--short, but jam-packed with great stuff. It's basically qualitative research told in narrative form. It compares and contrasts teaching styles and what is more effective for students to excel. It really questions our government's current obsession for testing which loses the whole love of learning for the sake of learning! The teachers described here have classrooms based on respect and high expectations and they get results, man. A major portion is devoted to developing a student's sense of self-efficacy. It replaces destructive thought patterns like, "I'm stupid at math" and "I'm no good at spelling" and "It's the teacher's fault for making me get an F on the test" with positive, realistic, can-do thoughts--but realistic, honest thoughts, not ooey-gooey feel groovy crap. I highly recommend this book and the companion book "Choice Words." Both books recognize the great power that teachers have over the thought lives and academic lives of their students. We teachers must use that power in constructive ways. WOW!!

5.0 von 5 Sternen Great Book 21. August 2013
Von Terry Mc Neal - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Taschenbuch Verifizierter Kauf
The book has lots of great ideas and is easy to follow. I used some of the ideas from this book and even though some of the things seem very obvious it causes you to think about childrens perspectives and the things we say as teachers.
