After publishing the New York Times best seller The Essential 55, award-winning teacher Ron Clark took his rules on the road and traveled to schools and districts in 49 states. He met amazing teachers, administrators, students, parents, all kinds of people involved in bringing up great kids. In the best of these people, he noticed the same qualities that he'd observed in so many of the teachers, children, and parents he'd worked with during his time teaching in North Carolina and Harlem. These are the qualities he describes in The Excellent 11. Ron Clark pinpoints what it takes to make a great student and shows that the qualities apply to both educating children and becoming a great teacher or parent. You'll find out what the characteristics are, why they work, and how you can incorporate them into your classroom, home, and life. As he did with The Essential 55, Ron has filled this book with hundreds of suggestions, stories, and wonderfully funny anecdotes. You'll be smiling as you read and finding the inspiration to change lives, one student at a time.
