Editorial Reviews

Julie Wakefield
“One of the richest books I have ever read for beginning teachers. Even veteran teachers will get a lot out of it. I really wish I had a book like this when I was a student teacher.”
Nancy L. Cook
“Provides many practical, pertinent, and useful ideas. These easy-to-implement ideas will help new teachers feel more secure and in charge.”
Jennifer Crissman Ishler
“Contains excellent examples, vignettes, cases, and stories. Student teachers want to hear real-life stories and examples from those in the field, and this book delivers. The authors turn technical and theoretical concepts into practical applications in an easy-to-understand style. A must-read for every student who wants to become a teacher and every first-year teacher in the field.”
Elena Vo
“I intend to recommend this book to my school’s leadership committee for use during teacher induction. The opportunities for reflection make this an excellent resource and self-evaluation tool for educators as well as administrators. The concise presentation of material also makes it a useful and realistic read for busy educators.”
Jennifer Wilson
“This book should be read three times: as course material for student teachers, during the first year of teaching, and again in the third year of teaching when experience will allow you to consider more perspectives as you form your own answers to the questions addressed in the book.”
