The New Teacher Survival Guide: An A-Z for the Primary School Teacher
A practical, real-world, and amusing guide for new primary school teachers. More
You are about to embark on a great adventure – entering a privileged career that is exciting, uplifting, overwhelming and terrifying (not necessarily in this order; occasionally all at once). Teaching is hard work, but it’s never dull. Who couldn’t love a day that might include short division the long jump, map reading, letter writing, roaming Daleks, and Roald Dahl?
As a new teacher you will be expected to be prepared for anything, be on top of everything, and have a knowledge-base to rival the Encyclopaedia Britannica. Drawn from over twenty years of classroom experience, this Survival A-Z is an invaluable collection of hints and tips designed to aid the smooth running of a positive classroom environment. It will help you to hit the ground running and focus on what’s really important: the children.
Covering topics such as Learning Objectives, Parental Involvement, Show and Tell, and Curse words in the Classroom, it also details critical techniques around Risk Assessments, Arm Folding, “I know you are, you said you are…” and Echoing.
This amusing, well-written, and to-the-point book covers more than 130 areas and themes to give you the head start you need!
