Better with Nuts: Classroom Survival & Success for New & Developing Teachers

Product Description
This book is my teaching bible! Jesse Rizzo Instructional Coach, Queens, NY; Carolyn McGown's book is a "must-read" for future, new, developing, and/or struggling teachers. Within its pages is a vast storehouse of detailed information on how to accomplish every imaginable aspect of proficient performance in a teaching position. Even if we received excellent training, there is the day-to-day minutia and routine tasks that are essential to our success as educators. Somehow, those topics don't make it into the college curriculum; Carolyn McGown's book "fills in the blanks" and "connects the dots," offering specific 'what to do' and 'how to do it' details, real life day-to-day examples, and down-to-earth practicality. Between the covers of this text is the vast knowledge base of a highly skilled veteran trainer of teachers. This book is a gem. Tom McIntyre, Ph.D. Special Education/Behavior Disorders, Hunter College; Better with Nuts is the kind of practical, user-friendly guide that new classroom practitioners long for. Drawing on years of experience as a teacher and teacher educator, Ms. McGown gives emerging childhood educators the tool kit they need to create well-managed spaces where children can learn and grow. A must-read for preservice and recently hired teachers. Wayne Reed, PhD Program Head, Childhood Education Brooklyn College; Carolyn's book is a common-sense survivor's guide to your first year of teaching and beyond. You learned all the theory in school. Carolyn helps you translate that theory into practice in a way that will enhance your student's learning, creative a positive environment in your classroom, and allow you to get up every morning and do your very best for the children. Frank Headley Principal, Queens, NY
