Drawing on content from Cowley's teacher-training clinics, this engaging handbook covers classroom management, behavior, lesson preparation, planning, homework, time management, stress, relationships and lifestyle issues. Experienced classroom teacher Cowley offers answers to questions like: How do I get the kids to shut up and listen? How do I teach a kid who's very clever but never gets anything down on paper? How should I cope with the kid who tells me to "f%&k off"?>
