Ask Ms. Class

Front Cover
Stenhouse Publishers, 1996 - Education - 214 pages
Meet Ms. Class. If you're like millions of teachers everywhere, surrounded by university pedants, curriculum zealots, school board buffoons, and driven parents, and you wonder how you'll ever get through it, you'll enjoy knowing Ms. Class, the source of sound advice for teachers. In hundreds of letters arranged under 300 topics, Ms. Class covers it all: the important things about schooling and curriculum that concern you (see Mastery Learning Jet Stream, Wrong and Right Answers for Paradigm Shift, Zone of Proximal Development Diffusion Network, Thematic Unit Omnipresence, School Board Sit-Com) and those pervasive, niggling details that really bug you, that get between you and the kids (see Adapter Plug Affirmative Action, Custodial Eminent Domain, Yard Duty Variances, Nurse s Office Magnetic Field, Pencil Sharpener Two-Tier Function.) All your pet peeves are here, and you'll find some new peeves to try out, if only because you like Ms. Class' answers! Ask Ms. Classis the ultimate advice book, for Ms. Class knows that teachers don't want field trip frenzy, merit pay, vouchers, time-on-task slips, vowel extra-strength formulas, or scope and sequence free agency clauses. Teachers want to be heard. Think about it: When was the last time someone listened to you? Someone who understands you and why you chose teaching for a profession? Someone who likes hearing from teachers. If you need a laugh or a good cry, ask Ms. Class. She listens, and she answers.
