The fifth graders inside are first-generation immigrants who live in poverty and speak English as a second language. They also play Vivaldi, perform Shakespeare, score in the top 1 percent on standardized tests, and go on to attend Ivy League universities. Rafe Esquith is the teacher responsible for these accomplishments.

From the man whom The New York Times calls “a genius and a saint” comes a revelatory program for educating todays youth. In Teach Like Your Hairs on Fire!, Rafe Esquith reveals the techniques that have made him one of the most acclaimed educators of our time. The two mottoes in Esquiths classroom are “Be Nice, Work Hard,” and “There Are No Shortcuts.” His students voluntarily come to school at 6:30 in the morning and work until 5:00 in the afternoon. They learn to handle money responsibly, tackle algebra, and travel the country to study history.

They pair Hamlet with rock and roll, and read the American classics. Teach Like Your Hairs on Fire! is a brilliant and inspiring road map for parents, teachers, and anyone who cares about the future success of our nations children. BACKCOVER: Praise for Rafe Esquith:“Rafe Esquith is my only hero.”—Sir Ian McKellan“Politicians, burbling over how to educate the underclass, would do well to stop by Rafe Esquiths fifth grade class as it mounts its annual Shakespeare play. Sound like a grind? Listen to the peals of laughter bouncing off the classroom walls.”—Time“Esquith is a modern-day Thoreau, preaching the value of good work, honest self-reflection, and the courage to go ones own way.”—Newsday
