Good Resource for Middle School Teachers
This is a good resource for a first time teacher to review before walking into the classroom for the first time and also for the teacher that has a few years under his/her belt. It offers practical advice for setting up the classroom and the lab and for establishing routines for successful classroom management. The book also includes a number of helpful handouts such as a letter to send to parents prior to the first day of class, lab safety rules, and sample rubrics, etc. as wells as a list of helpful web sites. Wish I'd seen this BEFORE my first few years, but glad I found it now as a helpful supplement!
