Description

New teachers get a wealth of advice and hands-on strategies for navigating through their first year of teaching–a first step that helps them understand the context of a classroom, develop effective classroom management skills, and successfully face the many and varied challenges of teaching in today’s diverse classrooms.

This unique and comprehensive resource addresses all of the important issues new teachers and alternate route teachers face as they enter their first classrooms–assessment, unit and lesson planning and design, and literacy instruction across the grades and content areas, including two chapters about literacy instruction with a focus on teaching students to read write, think, view, and speak well.

The guide is based on relevant research and includes helpful resource materials such as web sites, books, and articles that give new teachers additional sources to refer to throughout the school year. A true first step for teachers, the advice and strategies presented here help them understand the context of a classroom, develop effective classroom management skills, and successfully face the many and varied challenges of teaching in today’s diverse classrooms. Through the book’s sound advice and many strategies and ideas, new teachers and alternate route teachers gain the confidence and basic knowledge they need to begin their new careers successfully and responsibly. For alternate route teachers in particular, it effectively bridges their existing information gap as they complete their educational training.
