Gamesmanship for Teachers, a must-read from working educator and author Ryan A. Donlan, provides a much-needed shot in the arm for veteran teachers who are inarguably on top of their game, yet are currently bludgeoned by the many nonsensical notions in No Child Left Behind. Great teachers, now working in a much-maligned profession, can give themselves a pat on the back for great work. In this book, teachers discover the power of uncommon sense that this author shares with respect to pedagogy, politics, and the personal health of professionals. This book is a respectful blend of "by-educator for-educator straight talk," game-sharpening strategy, and a celebration of why great teachers went into education in the first place and why they should stay.
