A Practical Guide for the Beginning Science Teacher

Other Titles in:

September 2012 | 188 pages | Corwin
Rise and Shine provides a friendly support system that new science teachers can turn to in their first days, months, and even years in the classroom. This easy-to-read book offers plenty of helpful techniques for managing the classroom, maintaining discipline, and working with parents. But it also covers important topics unique to science teaching, such as setting up a laboratory, keeping the classroom safe, and initiating inquiry from the first day. Sprinkled throughout the book is candid advice from seasoned science teachers who offer both useful strategies and warm reassurance. Rise and Shine is designed to help preservice teachers, those in the first few years of teaching (regardless of grade level), and those who may be entering a new situation within the teaching field. If you need a mentor—or if you are a mentor or instructor who wants to support beginning science teachers—this book is for you.
