Overview

Research shows that time invested during the first three weeks of school to teach Routines, Rubrics, and Rules- the three Rs- leads to higher student achievement throughout the remaining 33 weeks of school, or 3 + 3 = 33.

This wonderfully practical and effective new book from bestselling author Elaine K. McEwan will help any teacher through those critical weeks and show how truly "with-it" teachers (WITs) can more easily manage the three critical facets of every teacher's day: classroom management and organization, student engagement, and time management.
