Good teaching is much more than a college degree and a collection of lesson plans. This book is unique in that it focuses on the basic and essential elements of quality teaching. It's designed specifically for teachers (both novice and experienced) looking for down-to-earth practical answers to their questions and concerns. From the first day to assessment and from homework to classroom management - this book has it all! The Teacher's Handbook, an all-in-one sourcebook of practical ideas and solutions, provides simple, convenient strategies for every classroom teacher. A creative range of "inside information" is offered for teachers to dip into and savor for their professional and personal pursuits. The Teacher's Handbook is organized for hungry teachers-a veritable smorgasbord of possibilities to taste and test as part of a sumptuous professional feast.
