How do successful teachers become successful? What skills do they have and which resources do they use? Dr. Ellen Kronowitz explores the keys to successful teaching and offers a realistic view of today’s classrooms and presents a very practical approach to preparing to teach. Pre-service and in-service teachers alike are provided tried and true experienced-based suggestions and research-based strategies and solutions to meet classroom challenges.
