A Teaching Handbook for the Non Teacher

This teacher prepared guide is filled with proven methods for presenting lessons. The work is offered as help forpeople with little or no teaching experience who are preparing to teach children, whether it be in the classroom, or small groups of Boy Scouts, Library Teaching groups, Sunday School Teachers, and even Homeschooling Parents.

A Teaching Handbook for the Non Teacher

This is a comprehensive guide which covers every aspect of teaching from positive reinforcement, to lesson planning and preparation.

Sr. Editor VanGoachBooks


A Teaching Handbook for the Non Teacher is a teacher, 25+ years in the public school classroom prepared guide. The work is filled with proven methods gained from 'trial and error,' 'just plain dumb mistakes,' and at last gaining an understanding for what does and does not work when presenting lessons.

The book is offered as a help for those brave people with little or no teaching experience who are preparing to teach children. Whether you are preparing to enter the classroom for the very first time, or have agreed to work with small groups of Boy Scouts, engage in some Library Teaching Reading groups, Sunday School work, or have decided that you will become one of the Homeschooling Parents A Teaching Handbook for the Non Teacher offers some good plans written in plain terms.


A Teaching Handbook for the Non Teacher is the book I wish had been available for me when I stepped into that first classroom on the first day of my first year of a long and delightful career. A college degree, 'practice teaching,' NOTHING prepared me for the reality of 42 non English speaking kids in a room meant to hold 25!




Excerpt

"Mama," I blubbered, "it was awful. There are forty-two of them, they all talk at once and most cannot even speak English. My Spanish is useless. Nobody listens to me anyway, they roam all over the room," I sobbed and I wailed my misery into the telephone.

"Not one child, not a single one was in his chair the whole dreadful day. I forgot to do my recess yard duty and another teacher had to go out and fill in for me. I cannot do this Mama. I was stupid to think I wanted to be a school teacher. I want to come home."

Thus began my mostly happy quarter century plus career as a primary grades school teacher of young children. My first excursion into the public elementary classroom came about when I at the age of nineteen armed with all that 'just received' college education, giddy high hopes and unrealistic stars in my eyes signed my very first contract. What an exciting, heady moment that contract signing was too, I can tell you.

In my mind's eye I saw myself sailing forth to become an instant 'teacher of the year' success and to completely revolutionize the whole educational system for the entire state of California if not the nation.


Professional Reviews
interesting and helpful
THE REVIEW:

I read through your "Non Teacher" handbook. A Teaching Handbook for the Non Teacher and I like the format. I think the way you highlight and throw in the hints and other things would be very helpful to a rookie. This way the person who NEVER reads a whole manual will be able to quickly get to the nuts and bolts of things.

I loved your humorous incidents etc. that were peppered throughout A Teaching Handbook for the Non Teacher .

For those who will read the whole A Teaching Handbook for the Non Teacher , I think it will be very entertaining as well as educational . It is the sort of thing a person needs on hand so they can refer to it when something comes up.

I wish you luck with A Teaching Handbook for the Non Teacher ! A Teaching Handbook for the Non Teacher is as interesting and helpful as any of the materials I have ever explored that were written by the so called experts in the field. I think that your use of real situations that happened to you make it more believable than most I have had experience with!

Fills The Gap
The Review

This valuable guidebook A Teaching Handbook for the Non Teacher fills the gaps in teacher training -the things they never tell you before you face that first lively group of students.

Speaking from the perspective of a veteran public school classroom teacher and present grade school library media specialist, I can say A Teaching Handbook for the Non Teacher would be very useful (and entertaining) to teachers and small group leaders, no matter how many years experience.

A Teaching Handbook for the Non Teacher gives creative and excellent advice that helps prevent most problems from ever developing - and, if they do, ways to handle them that don't leave you exhausted and student angry - paying big dividends in productivity.

The personal touches she adds keep you reading, and laughing through your tears, as you remember your own first awkward efforts at classroom management. Would love to share it with every first-year teacher and new group leader!

Refreshingly un-complicated and sensible
The Review

I've been teaching, on and off, for over 30 years, both here and in England, for small, private, specialized schools, working a lot with students of all ages with learning and behavior problems.

Whenever possible I work with the parents of my students, to teach them to reinforce what I'm teaching: self-reliance, concentration, thinking ahead, the importance of presentation, answering one's own questions, organization, etc., etc.

I saw your teaching book yesterday at the home of a client of mine. I saw many ideas and practices that I heartily agree with and employ with consistently good results. I read many books about parenting and teaching, and found yours refreshingly un-complicated and sensible. Thank you for that good work.

Jill Janis 30+ year teacher


Reader Reviews for "A Teaching Handbook for the Non Teacher ... or I must have been mad to think I wanted to teach"


Reviewed by Patricia Guthrie 10/27/2008
I taught in the Chicago Public School Systemfor 17 years. Believe me, my first year (s) were like that too. I used to stand in the parking lot with a co-worker and cry my eyes out. I developed a thicker skin.
Still wasn't easy. And yes, there were a LOT of them in each class.

Once you fall in love with teaching - it is a horse that can't be put back in the barn so to speak. Unfortunately, teaching is one of the most difficult arenas to throw your hat into now a days. This is a much needed handbook and I wish you tremendous success with it.

sounds like a good teaching book
Reviewed by j chanley 11/30/2002
I think this is an excellent tool: it is concise, clearly written and easy to follow. As a substitute teacher and hopefully one day classroom teacher I would call this a must have for my right hand desk drawer in my classroon.

As a staunch supporter and admirer of teachers(i admire what i could NEVER be),this book sounds like just what I need in my daily interaction with "at-risk" youth that do not respond well to traditional teaching.

Reviewed by susie harrison (Reader) 5/5/2001
The author captures the great essence real experience in teaching. As a home-schooling mother myself I just have to get a copy. I am personally sick of the so called experts (with no children of their own) changing their educated opinions year after year with no real concept of parenting and teaching. Thank You MJ Hollingstead for your great contribution!
