New teachers often face challenges in their first year of teaching that their textbooks might not have prepared them for: getting a job, preparing for the first day of teaching, ordering supplies, assuming the role of teacher, and more. This book is a survival guide for teachers with the "first year jitters."
This book gets straight to the point of what works for new teachers, and in a clear, engaging voice, explains how to do it. The book offers numerous methods for instruction not specific to any one subject or content area. The realities of the modern classroom are reflected in this "must have" guide.
Designed for anyone thinking about entering the teaching profession or novice teachers.
Contains practical examples of methods and techniques needed by occupational education teachers to deal with the bureaucracy, the curriculum, and the students, from the first day of class through their first final examination. The first chapter discusses why people become teachers, paths to becoming a teacher, credential requirements, and getting a teaching job. Later chapters cover surviving the first few days; principles of learning; assuming the role of teacher; techniques for organizing a course; techniques of teaching; and techniques of evaluation.
