5.0 out of 5 stars A must for not only 1st year teachers, but for all teachers., November 26, 1998
By A Customer
This review is from: The First Days of School: How to Be an Effective Teacher (Paperback)
I thought I knew how to manage a classroom and work with children, but my first year was confusing. All those things they teach you in college education classes just don't work in the real world. But I came upon this book during the summer. I was amazed at all the mistakes that I had been making and could now understand why I was having problems in maintaining order. I started out the new school year with the various techniques and ideas that the authors suggest. This year is so much more organized; my classroom activities just flow, classroom control had greatly imporved, and the students seem to be learning more, as test scores climb. It has centaily made my life as an educator much easier. I especially appreciated the chapter which makes you look at yourself and see if you are merely a "teacher" or are you a motivational "educator". I have shared this book with others who have been in the profession for many years and they have all have had high praises for the book. I understand that several of the surrounding colleges are considering adding this as a text to their educational programs. I honestly feel that graduating students would be far more prepared to fact actual classroom situtations with this knowledge under their belts.
