Everything I Need to Know About Teaching . . . They Forgot to Tell Me!

Everything I Need to Know About Teaching . . . They Forgot to Tell Me!

March 2006 | 104 pages | Corwin
This book helps the new teacher to survive the first year of teaching and wind up happy, wiser and still sane!

Can I teach the way I believe is best for my students? How can I get it all done? The worries, concerns and questions of first-year educators can be overwhelming and eventually lead to teachers leaving the profession. This candid look at the pressures and surprises of the first year of teaching provides the new teacher with guidance and advice that is full of encouragement, humour, and practical ideas, all based on real first-year experiences.

This guidebook emphasizes the aspects of teaching that college professors don't teach. Authors Stacey Jarvis and Bob Algozzine take a realistic approach to the unforeseen pitfalls that new teachers face, focusing on the major concerns of novice teachers:

o Controlling workload, managing time and overcoming fatigue;

o Forming strong relationships with students, parents, and colleagues;

o Maintaining autonomy and control of teaching style and methods.
