Experienced Teachers Handbook. First Edition.
IMPACT II--The Teachers Network, New York, NY.
This book for experienced elementary and secondary school teachers was written by teachers and combines personal anecdotes and model program ideas with effective practical "how-tos." The first chapter asks the experienced teacher to assess how far he or she has come in years of teaching. The second chapter addresses learning and teaching in the classroom including hands-on learning, cooperative learning, and other new approaches. Chapter 3 looks at managing student behavior. Chapter 4 discusses educating for social responsibility, particularly with respect to diversity issues and the environment. The fifth chapter examines educating students for life-long learning and independence. The sixth chapter discusses the richness of collaborative interaction with students, parents, and other professionals. The seventh chapter explores how teachers can make the transition from experienced teacher to professional educator by taking control of their own professional development. The eighth chapter shows how to maintain sanity through time management and taking advantage of all available resources, involving and drawing on parents, students, and other colleagues, and assessing self-management. The last chapter offers suggestions for keeping motivation and enthusiasm alive. The guide includes a list of associations and organizations for teachers, a list of contributing teachers, and an index. (JB)
