With the No Child Left Behind Act, the pressure is on for teachers across America to cover a lot of information with little time in the classroom. But middle and high school students face many technological and emotional distractions today, making it difficult for teachers to find innovative teaching methods to keep students attentive.

This book was written for middle school and high school teachers who want to get students to pay attention and thoroughly learn the material.

Getting your students to learn means extensively knowing about their age groups and how their minds work. You will learn about middle and high school students’ physical and cognitive changes, thought patterns, personality types, behavioral differences, as well as effective memory aids and the amount of time you should spend with them on simple brain exercises. This book provides you with helpful mnemonic devices, tips, and games so you can become a fun and effective teacher.

Also, earn students’ utmost respect by discovering how to appropriately discipline from the beginning, based on the situation and age group. This book will teach you how to assess students’ individual learning and behavioral needs and mold your teaching around them. Find out how to detect and address learning disabilities, follow intervention plans, and involve the principal and parents when necessary.

Understanding your students enables you to become the best, most effective teacher you can, and it allows your students to fulfill their potential. This book will also help you learn from your mistakes and reduce down time to increase teaching time. You will benefit from methods to hold students’ attention, quick transition techniques, guidance setting grade requirements and expectations, and ways to motivate even the laziest student.

Learn where to find help with lists of websites and other resources for teaching tips, up-to-date teaching requirements, discipline approaches, and more. We have spent hundreds of hours interviewing teachers, principals, staff, faculty, psychologists, counselors, and students to give you a full picture of how middle and high school students think and learn best. Use this book to make your classroom a safe haven for learning, and earn students’ attention and respect for years to come as you become the best teacher you can be.
