Overview

Meet Ms. Class.

If you're like millions of teachers everywhere, surrounded by university pedants, curriculum zealots, school board buffoons, and driven parents, and you wonder how you'll ever get through it, you'll enjoy knowing Ms. Class, the source of sound advice for teachers.

In hundreds of letters arranged under 300 topics, Ms. Class covers it all: the important things about schooling and curriculum that concern you (see Mastery Learning Jet Stream, Wrong and Right Answers for Paradigm Shift, Zone of Proximal Development Diffusion Network, Thematic Unit Omnipresence, School Board Sit-Com) and those pervasive, niggling details that really bug you, that get between you and the kids (see Adapter Plug Affirmative Action, Custodial Eminent Domain, Yard Duty Variances, Nurse s Office Magnetic Field, Pencil Sharpener Two-Tier Function.) All your pet peeves are here, and you'll find some new peeves to try out, if only because you like Ms. Class' answers!

Ask Ms. Class is the ultimate advice book, for Ms. Class knows that teachers don't want field trip frenzy, merit pay, vouchers, time-on-task slips, vowel extra-strength formulas, or scope and sequence free agency clauses. Teachers want to be heard.

Think about it: When was the last time someone listened to you? Someone who understands you and why you chose teaching for a profession? Someone who likes hearing from teachers. If you need a laugh or a good cry, ask Ms. Class. She listens, and she answers.

Editorial Reviews

Middle Ground
Susan Ohanian (a veteran teacher and author AKA Ms. Class) has very few sacred cows. Her book, which is a collection of Dear Abby-style questions and answers about education, takes potshots at teachers, administrators, school board members, parents, publishers, and just about anyone with a connection to education. Consequently, readers will agree with her some of the time and disagree with her at others. Yet, readers also will know where Ms. Class stands on each issue and why she has chosen that position. More importantly, Ms. Class' deep concern for students is evident throughout the book, which makes it easier to digest the fault-finding about your own sacred cows.
