Book News Annotation:

Using the curious but apt "numerym" 3+3=33, consultant McEwan shows how effectively and consistently applying the three Rs (routines, rubrics and rules) in the first three weeks of class can create success in the other 33 weeks. Writing for frizzled veterans as well as dewy novices, she explains creating spaces for teaching and learning, designing walls that work, teaching routines that develop self-discipline, developing rubrics that raise expectations and achievement, giving rules and rewards that build character and motivation, and developing a 3+3=33 plan for your own practice. She includes a number of practical techniques in a separate section, including ways to check for understanding, unique and often participatory signals that get silence from students, time-savers for teachers and rewards that range from the intangible to the edible.

Synopsis:

Best-selling author Elaine McEwan demonstrates how teaching routines, rubrics, and rules during the first three weeks of school leads to higher achievement through the rest of the year

Synopsis:

How to Survive and Thrive in the First Three Weeks of School provides teachers at all levels with the knowledge, skills, and motivation to start the year off right and succeed over the long term. The book is based on the concept of 3+3=33, or routines, rubrics, and rules (the 3Rs) taught and mastered over the first three weeks of the school year, resulting in a successful remainder of the school year (33 weeks).

Teachers who consistently implement the 3+3=33 model are referred to as WITs, or with-it-teachers, who consistently manage three critical facets of classroom life: the management and organization of the classroom, the engagement of students, and the management of time. Dozens of with-it-teachers share their own personal routines, rubrics, rules, advice, reflections, wall and bulletin board set-ups, posters, checklists, tables, and other resources.

Frequently asked questions from both new teachers and veteran teachers are included along with with-it-teacher roundtable discussions and a WIT List containing over two hundred time-savers, noise-breakers, attention-getters, silent signals, and homework helpers.

Synopsis:

How to Survive and Thrive in the First Three Weeks of School is based on a big idea represented by the numerym equation 3=33the educational version of winning a game, match, or race during the initial minutes of competition. The author refers to educators who implement the concept of 3=33 with-it-teachers or WITs. The goal of the book is to provide all teachers with the knowledge, skills, and motivation to become WITs. It attempts to offer additional ways to experience with-it-ness and the unique opportunity to learn from dozens of WITs at every level who shares their own personal routines, rubrics, and rules toward the goal of helping others become a WIT.

The book features a tremendous amount of pedagogy, including:

  • Photos of teachers and students
  • Sidebar quotes and resources
  • Voices of new teachers
  • Checklists and tables

A resource designed for all grade levels, this handbook focuses on the first three weeks of schoolsthe most challenging days for every new teacher.
