While you can’t teach experience to a new teacher, there are a slew of techniques that can help those just starting out in the classroom, and ASCD has put together a package of three books by teaching pros to aid newbies. The titles include:
• “Never Work Harder Than Your Students and Other Principles of Great Teaching,” by Robyn R. Jackson
• “The New Teacher’s Companion: Practical Wisdom for Succeeding in the Classroom,” by Gini Cunningham
• “Where Great Teaching Begins: Planning for Student Thinking and Learning,” by Anne R. Reeves
There are sample chapters to see if these are the right books and the best part is that the books cost $63.88 or $48.68 if you’re an ASCD member.
