Handbook for the Beginning Teacher: An Educator's Companion is an invaluable reference of best practices to help the student teacher or the beginning in-service teacher prepare for and develop his or her first classroom.
This text is filled with teaching ideas, tips, and checklists to make the teacher's job easier. It contains useful information on how to assess and grade students, the issue of politics in the school, and working with special populations of students. Handbook for the Beginning Teacher also includes classroom mangement techniques and protective behaviors and procedures used to avoid violence in the school and in the individual classroom.
Moffatt and Moffatt developed this text with the input of teachers and students from all subjects and grade levels to insure that all teachers' needs are met. Many tips and procedures in the text, such as the countdown calendar, make the difficult task of preparing for a new school year easy. Charts, outlines, and teacher materials in the text are readily available for teacher use, as they have been provided in an 8 x 10 format with perforated pages so they can be pulled out and used and reused as needed.
