Brighter Beginnings for Teachers
In Brighter Beginnings for Teachers, Patty Pullen identifies the issues that send teachers screaming from the profession, including the primary problem of behavior management. The U.S. Department of Education reports that between 30 to 50 percent of teachers quit the profession within the first five years, and that lack of preparation in classroom management is the primary cause for this flight. In this proactive book, Pullen addresses the essential elements that compose good behavior management which includes: Finding a good match for teacher and school, Determining who the tough kids are and how to plan for them, Collaborating with parents (even difficult parents), Formulating a behavior management program before the students arrive. Written in question and answer format, this book will be valuable to special education teachers and regular education teachers, kindergarten through high school. It can also be used as a supplementary text in teacher education programs and for induction programs in school systems.
