A Practical Guide for First-Year Teachers in Grades 1-3



May 2001 | 180 pages | Corwin
This book is intended as a supplementary support system for new teachers. The author has surveyed student teachers, supply teachers, those returning to the profession, as well as teacher educators. The wide-ranging answers to "what would you like to see included in a teaching reference?" are here - everything from setting up a classroom to developing themes, instructional presentation, student assessment, and more.

Practical, easy-to-implement suggestions are provided for lesson plans, record keeping, using technology in the classroom, planning special events, and developing and maintaining professional credentials and portfolios. The author draws on her fourteen years of teaching experience to answer basic questions about the most important aspects of teaching. Actual samples of lesson units, themes, communications with parents, etc., are included, with easy-to-follow, classroom-tested suggestions.
