This book has two purposes. It was written for novice teachers who lack the experience to deal with the day-to-day problems that they will find in the classroom. They will be given a "bag of tricks" and proven techniques which will provide them with added confidence as they practice their craft during that all important first year. It will allow them to navigate around and through an educational landscape, which very often can be a hazardous journey.
The book was also written to encourage all teachers to break away from the teach to the test mentality that has been dominating our schools for several decades. There is a heavy emphasis on critical thinking and creativity which focuses on teaching the child, rather than teaching the curriculum. Readers will find a wealth of activities and strategies that are designed to get children to think, rather than memorize data that they will forget after the test is over.
