Successful Teaching Practices in Action: Instructional Videos for New Teachers with Supplemental Educational Resources. [CD-ROM].
Teachers Network, New York, NY.
This CD-ROM presents four videos that feature veteran elementary and middle school teachers in action in their classrooms. Each video offers links to supplemental education resources, including innovative lesson plans. The four videos are: "Cinderella: A New Teacher's Tale" (Tracey Stober), which introduces the Teachers Network's Online Survival Courses; "Aligning Standards, Curriculum, and Assessment" (Matt Wayne), which shows how to use standards to align curriculum and notes the importance of using a variety of assessments to determine whether students understand what they are supposed to learn; "Classroom Management" (Linda Kasarjian), which walks through one teacher's typical morning and the routines that she has developed to aid in her classroom management; and "Classroom Management: Cooperative Learning" (Alice Hom), which focuses on how to form cooperative groups and explains why cooperative learning is so beneficial to students.
