Easy to read. Great subject knowledge from author and content touches on subjects you need information on as a teacher first entering the field. Lots of good advice.

I have a confession to make. I haven't read this book. Nor do I even own it. But I did have Eric Hougan as a Homeroom teacher his first year as a teacher, and let me tell you, he is amazing. At a tough school with a bad reputation for lots of dropouts, poor curriculums, and just a feeling of overall apathy toward learning by the students, he stood out. He motivated kids, bonded with them, adapted to different styles of learning for different students, and he did what it seemed like many of the teachers at the school couldn't do, he cared. Day in and day out he tried his damnedest with every student. He taught classes and did psyudo-workshops/lectures about the topics in this book, and they were very informative, concise and productive. I imagine the book is the same.

As a teacher with 10 years of experience, I wish I had read this when I started out. It would have saved me tons of time and grief. Great read.

I am in the process of taking my alternative certification to become a Spanish teacher and I have been trying to find a teaching job or teacher's aide job. This book prepares you to what to expect in the teaching field and gives you examples of everything. If you are not sure if you want to become a teacher, buy this book, the ideas are wonderful and the best part is that it was written by someone who wanted a career change. It also provides you with a website with teacher interview questions you can expect. They were so many questions (about a 120) that I had to reduce them to about 60. Some questions were repetitive but written in a different way. About a week ago I went to a teacher interview for a Spanish position and I do not have teaching experience. I was asked at least 10 of the questions I obtained from this website the book gives you. I felt I did really well in the interview even though I still do not know if they will hire me. Even if they do not hire me because of my lack of experience, I really feel more confident now, I know I failed in the areas where the interviewers wanted specific examples which I did not have because of my lack of experience. I haven't finished the book but so far I am loving it and it will be an excellent tool for me when I start my alternative certification program.

If you are entering the profession, this book is mandatory reading. I can't guarantee you'll have a job if you follow the instructions in this book, but it will set you up on the right path towards a career in teaching. Finally, Mr. Hougan is a seriously talented writer who was able to write about some complex ideas that were easily understood and enjoyed by the everyone, non-teachers included. Order this book and you'll defiantly be pleased that you did.
