Great book to have

  • Jul 27, 2010
My husband is planning on teaching partime online so I thought to grab this book for good reference and it is! So far he enjoys this book and fine it to be a good read, plus he have recommended it to all his friends in education. Especially those who have retired from public schools and are now working with colleges in teacher training programs.

This should be required reading for all college students who are considering education as a major. Apart from that, this book has given him great ideas to try in his effort to be the best teacher he can be.

This is a must have for new teachers. I cannot say this strongly enough.
The tips given in this book will put you on the road to success with simple
attention to how you run a classroom.
