From the Back Cover:

A life-saving guide to maintaining your sanity during your rookie teacher year

Nothing's more daunting for a first-year teacher than the moment when the cold, hard reality of classroom life strikes. It can come in many forms--from the unruly student to pesky state standards--but one thing's for certain: That moment will come, and more will follow. The Organized Teacher takes you beyond theory and into hands-on classroom management.

Designed for use from Day 1, this blueprint for classroom success sees you through your first year by getting right down to the nitty-gritty of "in the trenches" teaching. Among hundreds of valuable tips, The Organized Teacher provides:

  • Advice on everything from desk arrangement to unit planning
  • Sample room setups, from kindergarten to fifth grade
  • Tried-and-true behavior-management strategies
  • Practical advice on creating student portfolios
  • Checklists and signs in reproducible 8-1/2-by-11-inch format
  • Templates and samples of math and writing rubrics

As a new teacher, you'll have to deal with an extraordinary number of tasks, rules, and standards--not to mention the ubiquitous "human factor." This guide will help you make a smooth transition from the cozy comfort of school to the unpredictable, always-eventful profession of teaching.
