Product Description

This 109-page bundle includes handouts and printables to meet teachers' wants and needs in these three focus areas: Planning, Teaching, and Managing Secondary Classes. It also offers blog posts that suggest how, when and why the various focuses will be most useful to them. Although some of the information here is self-explanatory to rookie and veteran teachers, other ideas become clearer with short discussions. And sometimes …sometimes we just need a heads-up on how to use a new item-especially during Teacher Week because of all of the meetings- when we just. don’t. have. a. free. brain. cell. to. think. about. it.

Within each segment I have interspersed blogs to show teachers how to efficiently create flexible lesson plans, classroom rules, and behavior standards. Numerous teaching ideas, handouts and classroom management forms will meet many of your wants and needs in one place to save you searching time. In the final pages, I invite you to take a break from all of your planning and organizing, and to kick back and relax with two posts: A Labor Day Lesson: A Contemporary Tale, and In Defense of Teenagers.

Including Freebies (*) and paid products (**) from my TpT Store, posts from my website (***), and many new ideas and printables, teachers will find a plethora of material to help them smoothly move from the first day of the school year to the last.
