Already I have created a networking contacts list on Excel. And I will also be creating a Reading List of all the books I studied last year, and will be adding to it during this year's study (and my own reading around the subjects). And that's just from a few strategies in the book!
I am making a list of ideas from "Road to Teaching" as I read, and I've now got a very detailed list of things to think about and do so that I am prepared for a year of productive learning (as well as some effective tools for organizing resources throughout this year and beyond).
I highly recommend this book. It will help you to get the most out of your teachers' training. It will also help you to be prepared for student teaching (well, as prepared as anyone can be...gulp). And it will help you to reflect and finely tune why you want to be a teacher and give you tools to develop way beyond your training.
I am now looking at the next few years (training and getting a teaching position) from a higher perspective and I think that is one of the main gifts of this book. It helps you to define and keep in mind your vision for teaching, and then it helps you to become actively involved in making it a reality.
Thank you Eric!
If you need some help with the unspoken "rules" of student teaching, or some tips to get a job, this book will help you. Establishing networks in bigger districts is a little harder to do, but those sections may work for smaller districts where there is only one high school, etc.
