In this funny and insightful book, Gary Rubinstein relives his own truly disastrous first year of teaching. He begins his teaching career armed only with idealism and romantic visions of teachin--and absolutely no classroom management skills. By his fourth year, however, he is named his school's "Teacher of the Year." As Rubinstein details his transformation from incompetent to successful teacher, he shows what works and what doesn't work when managing a classroom. Just a few of his ideas: Develop a teacher look. The teacher look says, "There's nothing you can do that I haven't already seen, so don't even bother trying." Show students that you are a "real" teacher by doing things they expect of real teachers, at least for a while. Be prepared to utter a decisive answer to anything within two seconds. Decisive answers inspire confidence. Any teacher--experienced or not--will enjoy this honest and humorous look at the real world of teaching and will come away with some very helpful ideas for classroom management. The book is used all over the country in teacher preparation programs. Ben Guest, Program Manager for the Mississippi Teacher Corps describes the book as "That rare classroom management book that is both thoughtful and realistic. It is also a great read, with parts that are laugh-out-loud funny."

"You're a high school substitute? Are you crazy? We were so mean to them!" This is a common reaction when I tell people what I do, but I love substitute teaching at the high school level. I started substitute teaching in 1989, fresh out of college. I was looking for a way to support myself while I was in graduate school. A friend told me, "You have a bachelor's degree, so you can be a substitute teacher." In writing this book, I hope to be as good a friend for you as he was for me. This book explains not only how to get a high school substitute teaching job, but also how to do the job so well that it will be rewarding in and of itself. If you know any college graduates who are unemployed, tell them about this book. It might help them support themselves in the meantime, while they seek employment in their fields. Being an excellent substitute can also open the door to a regular full-time teaching position. Up until the advent of the Internet, most books for substitute teachers consisted largely of worksheets the substitute could photocopy and hand out to students, in the event the regular teacher hadn't left enough work to fill the whole class period. Today, you can instantly find and project one of a million free Internet worksheets. Heck, 99% of today's high school students have phones capable of finding these worksheets. You won't find worksheets in this book. High school students are too smart to do a substitute's ungraded busy work anyway. Today's high school students crave human interaction. I've seen them get more excited about a classroom discussion than about watching a movie. Times have changed, and I have remained a successful high school substitute teacher by embracing the changing times. Give my book a read and let me show you how to be a good high school substitute teacher who enjoys the job.

Martha Boyne, Emily Clements and Ben Wright’s Thrive: In your first three years in teaching equips trainee secondary school teachers with the know-how to lay the foundations for a successful career in teaching, long after the challenging first few years are over. Martha, Emily and Ben are thriving teachers. In Thrive they share their personal experiences and demonstrate how you too can thrive during the tricky training year, the daunting NQT year and the crucial RQT year. Using their collective insights, and plenty of evidence-informed strategies and advice, they detail how you can get to grips with the classroom basics – from behaviour management and lesson planning to differentiation and providing for SEND – and effectively continue your professional development. This book is not just a survival manual to help teachers get through their first three years in teaching. Nor is it an academic text that has been written by authors who have only a distant memory of what it takes to stand in front of a class of teenagers for the first time. Thrive is something very different. It gives both the aspiring and the newly qualified the support and guidance to become a thriving teacher, and has been co-authored by three recently qualified teachers who in this book invest their passion and practical knowledge to inspire and inform others who want to pursue enjoyable and rewarding careers in teaching. Thrive is divided into three parts – specifically detailing what can be expected in the training year, NQT year and RQT year respectively – with the authors’ commentary threaded throughout to demonstrate how the ideas discussed can be successfully put into practice. Their accounts are also complemented by expert advice from two people who are at the very top of their profession, Lianne Allison and Dr Simon Thompson, who provide wider perspectives drawn from a wealth of teaching experience. Forty of the book’s forty-six chapters begin with a checklist outlining what a developing teacher is expected to do, and each chapter ends with a to-do list that can be used as a quick reference point to structure the strategies implemented. These to-do lists are also followed by lists of suggested further reading so that readers can delve deeper into topics and fields of research that they find particularly interesting or relevant. Furthermore, the book offers helpful counsel on choosing the best training route as well as an in-depth analysis of the change in priorities for busy teachers as they progress: encouraging constant reflection, outlining potential pathways and emphasising the importance of evidence-based practice and how new teachers can, and should, incorporate this into their teaching. Rooted in practical strategies and innovative ideas, Thrive is the essential guide for trainee secondary school teachers and teacher trainers.

Those starting a career in teaching will put in an incredible amount of energy into their practice in order to learn their craft and become respected professionals. In many cases, however, this energy is not enough to survive as a teacher. Currently, about 20% of new teachers will leave the profession after five years. The purpose of this book is to improve the “survivability” of novice teachers by focusing on three key areas that are essential to starting a career successfully: Classroom Management, Time Management, and Job Hunting. Classroom management is much more than controlling misbehaving students; it is about building “good” people who can make ethical decisions in both school and personal situations. Teachers are in “loco parentis,” which means they are in place of the parent. As role models, teachers need their students to learn – not just subject-specific content – but how to interact in kind and respectful ways with others. As author, I will be discussing how teachers can implement a “virtuous” classroom management plan in place of the common discipline routines that have only short term effects on student behavior. Making lesson plans, grading homework, and assessing students with daily exit slips are all very important aspects of teaching. But if not handled efficiently, they can overwhelm new teachers by the sheer volume of time that is needed to attend to them. It is all too common to see a time-stressed and exhausted teacher who is only getting a few hours of sleep each day, lose sight of the reasons they entered teaching and eventually fall out of love with their subject and those they teach. This book will tackle head on the above demands by posing many detailed, practical solutions to time management problems. Most young teachers, however talented they might be, won’t survive in a school that is run by an authoritarian administration that cares more about pass rates than they do supporting and growing their new teachers. Identifying these schools before accepting a position is critical. This book will show you how to use data bases to supplement my well described job hunting strategies in order to land the best teaching position possible. As I emphasize in my book, getting a good quality job is tantamount to developing a rewarding career as a teacher. Classroom management, time management, and job hunting: these are three necessary skills to survive and to thrive as a new teacher.

Hailed by renowned educator Deborah Meier as ?a rare and special pleasure to read,” Kindergarten explores a year in the life of a kindergarten classroom through the eyes of the gifted veteran teacher and author Julie Diamond. In this lyrical, beautifully written first-person account, Diamond explains the logic behind the routines and rituals children need to thrive. As she guides us through all aspects of classroom life?the organization, curriculum, and relationships that create a unique class environment?we begin to understand what kindergarten can and should be: a culture that builds children's desire to understand the world and lays the foundation for lifelong learning. Kindergarten makes a compelling case for an expansive definition of teaching and learning, one that supports academic achievement without sacrificing students' curiosity, creativity, or development of social values. Diamond's celebration of the possibilities of classroom life is a welcome antidote to today's test-driven climate. Written for parents and teachers alike, Kindergarten offers a rare glimpse into what's really going on behind the apparent chaos of a busy kindergarten classroom, sharing much-needed insights into how our children can have the best possible early school experiences.
