Summary and Info
Whether you're a new teacher wondering what you're getting yourself into or a veteran seeking to improve your craft, this guidebook is designed to lighten your load. The ideas, case studies and forms herein are designed to save new and veteran teachers many hours of work and frustration, and free up your time and energy to devote to your real purpose: teaching students. Note, however, that a guidebook is not a rulebook; this book does not purport to present a perfect system that guarantees flawless teaching. Demonstrated psychological principles and pedagogical strategies certainly apply, but education is as much an art as a science. This volume embodies decades of accumulated wisdom on teaching, with an emphasis on classroom management. To augment the author's own experience, the book gathers ideas from hundreds of written works and websites, combined with the collective insight of countless teachers--both new and experienced.
