R&L Education, 2004 - 93 páginas
Methods professors and other professionals in education try to prepare education majors for the world that awaits them after graduation, but in Welcome to My World: A Strategy Guide for New Teachers, author Chris Cleveland puts the new teacher directly into his or her first classroom and answers all the questions a first-year teacher may ask. The book serves as a practical and immediately useful guide for new teachers, as Cleveland touches on everything from preparing the classroom for students to creating an effective learning environment. In order to be successful, a teacher can convince the students that their education is paramount, then the students and the teacher can reap unbelievable educational and personal rewards. Cleveland can help new teachers get started on the right path to successfully educating young people. In addition, veteran teachers whose desire to excel has been thwarted by the realities of teaching, will likely find answers in Welcome to My World as to where and why their enthusiasm has dwindled, and will remember how important their initial goal was.
