Description:

`Teaching Is an Art can help new teachers adjust more smoothly into the education profession and can provide new ideas and insights for veteran teachers' - John Thompson, Assistant Principal, El Camino High School, South San Francisco, CAThe author draws upon his 27 years of teaching experience to provide student teachers and new teachers with practical information that isn't always taught in teacher education courses. He includes games, book recommendations, specific lesson plans and straightforward, humorous advice on all aspects of teaching. Teaching ability, wisdom, and fervor are not inborn; teachers can be taught elements of their art. The book covers 82 essential topics (including cooperative learning, communicating with parents, staff meetings, testing, portfolios, and many more) in a reader-friendly style, with easy-to-follow lists, examples, and suggested resources.
