After almost 40 years teaching public high school and community college, Cheryl Clark knows schools, kids, and English. She writes a funny, honest how-to/memoir, filled with anecdotes and photos.
A fun read for new teachers and former students, too!
Everybody who's been to school--whether in front of as part of the class--can enjoy reading about what school looks like from the teacher's point of view.
The book is filled with funny and sad memories from the author's vast experience teaching English, mostly in some big inner-city schools. Each chapter gives frank and witty advice and lesson ideas for teachers, interspersed with real examples of what happens in a classroom. Plans for specific lessons are included.
