The Eleven Commandments of Good Teaching. Creating Classrooms Where Teachers Can Teach and Students Can Learn. Second Edition.
This book presents advice, in the form of 11 commandments, on how new and veteran teachers can achieve a classroom environment that promotes exemplary teaching and learning. The advice is designed to help teachers: focus on why they became teachers in the first place; see their students as unique individuals; ask for help from the principal or school support staff; pick battles with care; and use common sense. The 11 commandments are: (1) "Thou Shalt Have a Calling To Teach; (2) "Thou Shalt Demonstrate and Project the Joy of Learning"; (3) "Thou Shalt Keep Your Eyes on the Prize"; (4) "Thou Shalt Be Organized and Accountable"; (5) "Thou Shalt Ask and Ye May Receive"; (6) "Thou Shalt Be Fair and Prepared"; (7) "Thou Shalt Use Some Common Sense"; (8) "Thou Shalt Be Open-Minded and Flexible"; (9) "Thou Shalt Not Work in Fear"; (10) "Thou Shalt Raise Your Expectations"; and (11) "Thou Shalt Keep Things in Perspective."
