This book is invaluable because it gives real-world advice. He shows how he allocated and divided 71 minutes of planning for a 50 min class.

This book is invaluable because it gives real-world advice. I was hired in an urban school and found that advice from both books didn't work. Then I discovered this book and found his advice to work. The book is 171 pages but is dense with information because the print is small (not huge like in a lot of Ed books, such as those two listed above). I find myself re-reading this book to brush up on my teaching skills. 4 people found this helpful.

Beyond Survival book. A good book for beginning educators. Rubinstein is clear and straightforward in his advice, and he does a good job sifting through some of the nonsense to give it to newbies straight. I don't agree with him on absolutely everything, but he's on point on most things. I really liked his advice about focusing on the activity first when designing lessons-that may have been the most important thing I learned from this book!

Using Anchor Charts in Middle and High School . At the beginning of a writing unit, I give students a prompt and ask them to respond

Using Anchor Charts in Middle and High School:. Teaching Elaboration in Writing. Lesson Planning Tips: Content Chunking. At the beginning of a writing unit, I give students a prompt and ask them to respond. This year, I used the prompt, Are iPads helping or hurting your education? because we are a 1:1 school; then, I assessed them with this pre-assessment rubric. The interesting part of this process, to me, was how confused they were when it came to the introduction and conclusion. They wanted to know how to make those paragraphs more than one sentence each. They just weren’t sure.

In response to concerns about teacher retention, especially among teachers in their first to fourth year in the classroom, we offer future teachers a series of brief guides full of practical advice that they can refer to in both their student teaching and in their first years on the job.

This book is invaluable because it gives real-world advice. When I was in a credentialing school, I had to buy books like Assertive Discipline and The First Day of School by Harry Wong. I was hired in an urban school and found that advice from both books didn't work. Then I discovered this book and found his advice to work. Some of them:

- Don't list consequences. In my first year I listed sequential consequences (as advised in Assertive Discipline) and sure enough, students were exploiting loopholes as Mr. Rubinstein said they would. Now I follow his advice in dealing out consequences.

- Not necessary to use hand signals to quiet the class (as advised in The First Day). Mr. Rubinstein's advice was eye opening. He says that students would quiet down if they respect you. Now I just tell the class firmly I need their attention. Before I was doing the hand-raising or hand-clapping thing and yes, within a week students were making a mockery of it (similar to his experience described in the book).

- The section on planning shows that you need to carefully spent 1-2 hours planning for an one hour class. There should be enough activities in the lesson plan. He shows how he allocated and divided 71 minutes of planning for a 50 min class.

The book is 171 pages but is dense with information because the print is small (not huge like in a lot of Ed books, such as those two listed above). I find myself re-reading this book to brush up on my teaching skills.

An entertaining and informative book perfect for new teachers! As someone who is applying for Teach for America, I loved his honesty about his own experience.

Great book for beginning teachers as well as veteran teachers! Well written and concise--valuable information given--will refer to it often!

I admit I didn't read all this book. I bought it because of the author's other book, "The Reluctant Disciplinarian", which I think ought to be read by anyone preparing to teach in middle school or high school. It's practical advice and explanation, something sorely missing in the field of teacher education. You won't find this stuff in ed school.

Google the author and check out his blog.

This book is WAY overpriced for the amount of information it gives (which you should already know anyway). For example, it explains how to ask questions - which any self-respecting teacher should already know from having Bloom's taxonomy pounded into their head.

Don't waste your money - go to class, do your work, and use your head - you'll be fine without this book.

As a new/beginning teacher, I'm SO glad to have read this book. It's to-the-point and incredibly practical, unlike a lot of teaching books I've read. Rubenstein's got a great teacher-to-teacher style that's reassuring and makes you take his advice seriously. If you're only going to buy one teaching book, buy this one; it's got great advice on everything a new teacher needs to know about, from getting a teaching job to perfecting the "teacher look".

I absolutely love this book! It's comprehensive without being repetitive, and filled with practical, to-the-point advice-- advice that is a lot easier to apply than theory. Being a first-year teacher is incredibly overwhelming, which is why I can appreciate a book that substantive and short. Gary covers: getting a job, tools of the trade, classroom management, goals for the first day, what not to do, goals for the first week, teacher-center vs. student-centered, planning, activities, lesson delivery, assessment, discipline, your persona, paperwork, the social aspect of work, extracurriculars, technology, mistakes, myths-- and more! It is pricey, but worth it. It will definitely remain a part of my teacher resource toolkit.
As a new teacher I found this book a great help to me. It provides useful information and practical advice for classroom management, lesson planning and instruction. It is an excellent resource not only for both middle and high school teachers.
