From the Author
This book was written in behalf of all secondary school teachers. It serves as an instructional guide for novice teachers and teachers-to-be. It is also a vehicle for evaluation and change for those who are already experienced professionals of the classroom. The content material reflects thirty-three years of personal experience in teaching and supervision. During your careers you will discover teaching methods and techniques not discussed in this manual but which work to your satisfaction. This text, therefore, is not to be viewed as dogma but only as a launching pad toward classroom competency. The book is designed to assist all teachers in making others receptive to information. A specific aim, however, is to give the new or inexperienced teacher a "jump start" in the classroom by offering him/her a foundation upon which to build classroom experience.
