About the Book

Beginning teachers often have qualms about the career they have chosen. The authors of Tips for Teachers have found a way to keep these students from being derailed.

This book begins with many suggestions for classroom management, teaching methods and student morale building. In the second half of the book the authors look into the fears and concerns of student teachers at a local college. These students cooperated in filling out a questionnaire revealing the things that worried them the most at the start of their careers. Each fear and concern has been sympathetically addressed by the authors. Several suggestions dealing with each fear is offered, based on their long term professional experience. Sample forms are in the back of the book which will help the new teacher get organized and be prepared to take on the challenges of teaching.

This book will be of value to teachers at all grade levels, especially from the seventh through the twelfth grade.
