Brighter Beginnings for Teachers
Rowman & Littlefield Education
In "Brighter Beginnings for Teachers," Pullen identifies the issues that send teachers screaming from the profession, including the primary problem of behavior management. The U.S. Department of Education reports that 30?50% of teachers quit the profession within the first 5 years, and that lack of preparation in classroom management is the primary cause for this flight. In this proactive book, Pullen addresses the essential elements that compose good behavior management. Written in question and answer format, this book will be valuable to teachers from kindergarten to high school. It can also be used as a supplementary text in teacher education programs and for induction programs in school systems.
