A must have book for substitutes

Like many, I because a substitute with no prior teaching experience. This book is a lifesaver! No other book I've read comes close to the down-to-earth advice it contains. I am a much better teacher because of it.

What's missing

Although I consider this book a pioneer in it's field with excellent materials, it could use with some lesson extenders. How can you take a theme and expand it to 30 minutes, 60 minutes, or all day? Also, it needs some good sponge activities.


This book enabled me to become effective as a middle school substitute teacher. The activities alone saved me; the advice made me effective. It is a must for any substitute teacher.


I have helped do some substituting in the local schools since 1998 and no other book is as comprehensive as this one for training substitutes. I've been to two different workshops on how to substitute, and each one highly recommended this book over ALL OTHERS!!What it contains: --How to be prepared for each day--What to bring in your "bag of tricks" (every sub should have one to survive).--How to act professional--Classroom management (keeping it under control)--Emergency procedures--First Aid--Legal Aspects--Disabilities and Special Ed--Giften and Talented--Multiculturalism--Brainstorming--KWL--Questions for Higher level Thinking--Using Audoi-Visual materials Effectively--FILL-IN ACTIVITIES--for when you need to fill in some spare time!--Also independent activities for those who finish their assignments early.You get the idea--this book HAS IT ALL.--George Stancliffe

Best resource available for substitute teachers

As a newly-credentialed substitute teacher with no classroom experience, I'm thrilled to have found the Substitute Teacher Handbook. I've looked at a number of other books on the subject, but find this to be the most complete resource. It is easy to read, thorough, well-organized, and full of useful examples and checklists. Half the book is dedicated to activities and lessons, grouped by grade, subject, and type (5-minute fillers, early finishers, & short activities). The other half includes behavior management, legal aspects, advice from school nurses, and other valuable information. I now know how to have a smooth, productive day, how to handle virtually any situation, and how to avoid bad habits that experienced subs find hard to break. I highly recommend this book to all new subs, and believe that experienced subs would benefit, as well.
