  Now in paperback, Ron Clark’s New York Times bestseller that’s changing America one child at a time!



  The runaway bestseller that’s a must-have for every parent and teacher.



  How many authors would travel coast to coast on a bus to get their book into as many hands as possible? Not many. But that’s just what Ron Clark, author of The Essential 55, did to keep his book and message in the public eye. And it worked. After his Oprah appearance, sales skyrocketed: we’ve sold more than 850,000 copies in six months! The book sat tenaciously on the New York Times bestseller list for 11 weeks. Ron Clark was featured on the Today show, and in the Chicago Tribune, Good Housekeeping, and the New York Daily News -- not to mention the calls we’ve received from teachers and parents who want to get their hands on Ron’s guidelines for teaching children. Now in paperback, The Essential 55 will be the perfect book for parents and teachers to slip into their own backpacks, to read on the train or at lunch, and to highlight the sections that resonate for them. And with an author who is truly a partner in getting his message to the masses, we just can’t lose.



  Ron Clark has been a teacher since 1995. Originally from North Carolina, he has taught in some of the most difficult schools in the country, most recently in Harlem, New York. Since winning the 2001 Disney Teacher of the Year Award, Clark has spoken to teachers, PTAs, and school boards across the country. He lives in Atlanta.




本書中譯本《優秀是教出來的》由雅言文化出版。




「全美最佳教師獎」得主給所有家長、中小學生、教育工作者的超基本55條唯一被美國總統接見過三次的小學老師



隨便放三十名學生在他班上,

不管從前成績、操行如何,

他都能把全班每一個都教成優等生


「 我每年開始帶一班,心裡都很清楚,我只有一年的時間,

去改變班上每個孩子的一生。我下定決心,

要給我的學生一個不同的人生,一個更好的人生。」


  在他教書的第一年,就有家長受不了他對小孩的嚴苛管教,打電話叫警察來捉他。在他教書的第五年,他二十八歲,已經榮獲「全美最佳教師獎」。


  對他來說,教書就是製造驚喜,就是製造孩子難忘的經驗。他教過的學校,學生都來自最貧困的家庭,學校的資源也不豐富。但憑著他的熱情,與本書所介紹的「超基本五十五條」,只要被他教過的學生,成績一定會突飛猛進,氣質也會變得彬彬有禮。

  隆•克拉克(Ron Clark))他說,他從沒想過要當老師。大學時代雖然有修教育學分,但純粹是為了拿助學金,好減輕父母的負擔。他熱愛旅行,到處尋求刺激。他一直覺得教書很無趣,他才不想教書。


  大學畢業後,他到歐洲、日本「冒險」了兩年,終於還是回到家鄉小鎮,當起了小學老師。他很意外地發現,教書也可以是一場充滿刺激的冒險之旅。他說,這個工作會賜給他許多大好機會,去改變孩子們的一生。他不能想像有一天他會不再教書,因為他才不想放棄那麼多那麼好的機會。


  他先後教過兩所小學。第一所在北卡州偏僻的鄉下,學生很弱勢,資源很缺乏,老師都不想去教,結果他把他那班教成全國知名,全班同學都獲得耶誕節前夕去白宮作客的殊榮,與克林頓總統伉儷一起唱「平安夜」。有一天他看電視,看到紐約市最貧窮的哈林區,那裡的學生更弱勢,資源更缺乏,老師更不想去教,他立刻決定搬到紐約市,找到電視節目中的那家環境奇差無比的小學,向校方毛遂自薦。結果兩年後,紐約市最難考的明星初中,考進去最多的就是他的學生。


  他是美國南方人。美國南方最講究生活教養,本書的「超基本五十五條」除了搞笑的那一條之外,幾乎都是他從小被祖母教出來的做人規矩。他在本書中傳授許多經驗談,分享他教書生涯的許多小故事,也分享他從自己犯過的錯誤中所學到的教訓。他的方式往往與眾不同,但他總會詳加解釋為什麼要這樣。我們也可以從書中看到他過人的熱情,了解他的學生之所以會脫胎換骨,變得既有禮又用功,靠得並不只是一大堆規定,還有他無保留的付出與耐心。


  本書在美國出版後,許多教育工作者和家長都覺得相見恨晚。大學的教育系所也爭相邀請他去演講。從美國到日本,許多教育網站都 post 了許多讚譽。他的專屬網站:http://www.ronclark.info/
