A Must Have for Veterans as Well as New Teachers!

I recently received a copy of the newly revised version of The First Days of School, and I love it! I'm enjoying it so much that I don't want to rush through it. I read it a little at a time, savoring it like a wonderful piece of chocolate. Everything is clearly written, and much of what is written is quite profound in its simplicity. I love the sidebars with extra information and inspirational stories, as well as the internet links to additional resources. The page layout is attractive and easy to read. Many people are familiar with this book as a "must have" for beginning teachers, but as a 27-year veteran, I can say that this book is just as powerful today as it was when I first read it years ago. There is much wisdom tucked inside its pages!

Don't Walk Into The Classroom Without This Book!

I won't go so far to say that this book could replace going through a teacher education program. But there is such a gap between all of the "theoretical stuff" you learn from your professors, and actual practice that this book has been literally a God-send to thousands of teachers.Dr. Wong and his wife have put together a wonderful resource based on the experieces of hundreds of successful teachers. This book is designed to give the pre-service teacher, or relatively new teacher a handle on what can be, the overwhelming experience of managing a classroom. This book deals in depth with what a successful teacher looks like, how to have positive expectations about student success, the sometimes elusive art of classroom management, designing lessons to foster student mastery, and the teacher as a professional educator. Practical, sometimes funny and inspiring from beginning to end, The First Days of School will both strengthen and encourage you for the journey ahead. Buy this book today, and read it many times over. I did!

The First Days of School

The First Days of School, is number one on the MUST READ list for anyone who aspires to be a good teacher. I'm in my thirty-first year as a high school science teacher and for the last nine years I have used this invaluable resource as a guide. I have obtained great ideas and strategies, priceless advice, valuable insight and inspiration. Using ideas from this resource concerning classroom management, lesson mastery, professionalism, positive expectations, et cetera, a teacher can formulate his/her own style to make themselves a much better, more effective professional educator. Dr. Wong's book applies to all teachers - rookies, veterans, elementary, middle school, and high school - alike. It provides a multitude of "time-tested" practical ideas, strategies and techniques which will make your teaching more effective, fun, exciting, meaningful, relevant, enjoyable, rewarding and successful. You will be at your best everyday; your classroom will function smoothly and at top productivity; and your students will leave each day with a feeling of accomplishment and satisfaction.
