Editorial Reviews

John J. Augenstein
Dr. Strike's handbook is a primer based upon extensive and valuable experience as a teacher and administrator and can serve as a desktop reference. She not only provides research- and experience-based suggestions but samples to illustrate them. She effectively uses the Latin guide, repetitio est mater studiorum (repetition is the mother of study).
Terry James
Dr. Strikes' book provides an incredibly solid reference for those being inducted to the profession. The organization is superb; the topics are timeless in that the issues addressed are ones that all 'newcomers' experience. For those who are astute enough to realize that having a reference book close by to refresh the memory on appropriate tactics and strategies rather than reverting to trial and error because of the complexity of moment, this is a book they want on their desk.
Carleen Vandeéande
Dr. Strike's work provides an overview of the foundational understandings of the school context that are so critical for new educators during their initial phase of teaching. It also serves as a comprehensive resource for mentors and administrators working with initial educators. Dr. Strike's work will support new teachers and give them the essential information they need to achieve success during the first years of teaching. The book established a shared vision of key concepts and skills for all who work with new educators.
