For substitute teachers, virtually every day is the first day of school - new students, new room, new routines, and often a new school building as well. How to Succeed as a Substitute Teacher targets a special audience of educators who regularly walk into brand new classrooms and who must quickly establish a climate for student learning to deliver instruction that will meet established curriculum standards. Cicely Anne Rude focuses on providing short, clear, practical, well-organized, and top-notch guidance for the substitute teacher. The book covers: school and classroom procedures; teaching tips for before, during, and after class; eight key tips for classroom management; 'What Would You Do' practice scenarios with multiple solutions; and professional topics (permits, pay, networking, and more). This guidebook is ideal for practitioners who take pride in being excellent substitute teachers and for educators who hire, train, and supervise them.
