THE NEW-TEACHER TOOLBOX :

PROVEN TIPS AND STRATEGIES FOR A GREAT FIRST YEAR--SECOND EDITION--NEW!

“Mandel has written a very practical, informative manual for new teachers. His examples for classroom standards, incorporating a variety of activities for diverse students, and teaching test-taking skills are right on target. For answers to fundamental questions and stress relief, Mandel’s manual is a must!”
—Johanna K. Lemlech, Professor Emerita, University of Southern California

“An extremely practical and user-friendly time-saver. Rather than beating around the bush with pages of statistics, philosophies, best practices, and methodologies, this toolbox cuts to the heart of real questions burning inside new teachers. New and experienced teachers can benefit from the quick fixes presented in this plentiful toolbox.”
—Leslie Gaillard, First-Year Teacher , Pacoima Middle School, Los Angeles, CA

This book deals with the conflict that teachers and administrators face with trying to raise their school's test scores, while at the same time, teaching the way they want to teach. Subjects covered include:

  • What is the best way to cover the material on which the students will be tested without "teaching to the test" or compromising daily instruction?
  • How can students be motivated to perform at their best without adding undue stress?
  • How can teachers improve students' critical thinkiing and test-taking skills?
  • How do administrators motivate and support their staff before and during test season?

COOPERATIVE WORK GROUPS: PREPARING STUDENTS FOR THE REAL WORLD

This book takes cooperative learning to the next level. The cooperative work group concept combines advenced cooperative learning, brain research (the Multiple Intelligences) and the newest technology (the Internet) in creating a learning environment where we produce students who are ready to enter the 21st century work place.
