Strategies for Middle and High School Teachers



December 2000 | 144 pages | Corwin
This book provides useful teaching ideas for secondary beginning teachers who wish to focus on their students, parents, colleagues, teaching associates, and school site administrators. The author includes examples and directions which beginning teachers can put to practical use in the classroom the next day. The tools, techniques, and strategies that will be lifesavers during the first year of teaching are all discussed here. The volume is the culmination of researching and assembling materials from beginning teachers in high schools over the course of three years.
