This book is intended to help novice secondary teachers with specific strategies in nine different dimensions of teaching, including classroom management. Unlike other books on classroom management, this book strays away from sweeping generalizations like "be organized" and provides detailed information about what new teachers will need to be organized, routines they can set up in their classrooms, and even how many binders they might need to buy and what they might be used for. Some tips even include exactly what teachers might say to students in given scenarios. Nine tips are directly related to what teachers should try to accomplish on the first day of school. Furthermore, the book provides explanations for why certain strategies work in some situations and why they will not work in others. Despite being such a comprehensive overview of important strategies in different areas of teaching, the book is not too dense with information and can easily be read in a day or used as a reference when teachers are confronting a tough situation.
