The book conbines examples from real classrooms and advice from experienced teachers to cover a wide range of topics including planning effective lessons, dealing with specific student behaviours, and communicating with parents.
Chapters include: TIPS, or theory-into-practice strategies, that clearly outline workable solutions; frequently asked questions that address common concerns of new teachers; and time-saving start-up materials, including forms, rubrics, and checklists. Filled with humour, wisdom and encouragement throughout, this book is like a mentor in your very own classroom.
