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
