Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

How do successful teachers become successful? What skills do they have and which resources do they use? Dr. Ellen Kronowitz explores the keys to successful teaching and offers a realistic view of today’s classrooms and presents a very practical approach to preparing to teach. Pre-service and in-service teachers alike are provided tried and true experienced-based suggestions and research-based strategies and solutions to meet classroom challenges.

 

Organized by 8 topical units that address common, overriding concerns in the classroom, teachers are taken from the first day to the end of the school year. Each of the brief chapters within each unit simplifies the complex challenges teachers face including: having a successful first day, organizing the classroom with proven routines and procedures, disciplining students in a respectful and positive manner, mapping out a differentiated curriculum, teaching with proven research-based strategies, assessing student learning, working with parents, preparing students for standardized tests, addressing the personal and professional needs of teachers, and much more. Paired with a powerful DVD that comes with every book, readers are provided with tips from leading authorities in education, examples from live classrooms, and printable resources ready for immediate use in the classroom.

Book News Annotation:

A former elementary school teacher and program development specialist, Kronowitz (California State U., San Bernardino) is the author of several resource texts for teachers. Written expressly for the new K-12 teacher, her latest text provides a quick and easy reference to support novices before and during their first years in the classroom. It also functions as a handbook for educational professionals who work with pre- and/or in-service teachers, such as supervisors, administrators, curriculum coordinators, mentor teachers, in-service support providers, university methods courses professors, and student teaching seminar leaders. The text is organized into eight topic units addressing everyday needs, concerns, and realities of teaching, including an overview of the first year followed by the key aspects of the first day, classroom organization and management, positive discipline, planning and organizing subject matter, engaging all learners, assessing and communicating student progress, a balanced professional life, and final tips.
