Teaching Is an Art An A–Z Handbook for Successful Teaching in Middle Schools and High Schools By Leon Spreyer
Drawing upon close to thirty years of teaching experience, Leon Spreyer provides teachers with practical information that is not always taught in teacher education courses. New and veteran teachers alike will find useful advice for managing their work both in and out of the classroom. The book covers eighty-two essential topics, including cooperative learning, managing parents, staff meetings, implementing tests, portfolios, setting rules, and much more.

Highlights include:

Practical advice on more than eighty subjects
Book suggestions and games for the classroom
Suggestions for staying motivated and avoiding burnout

Teaching ability, wisdom, and fervor are not inborn; teachers learn the elements of their art. With that in mind, Spreyer provides information, games, book recommendations, specific lesson plans, and straightforward advice on all aspects of teaching, ranging from Back-to-School Night to power in the classroom, and from homework to substitute teachers. And he does it in a reader-friendly style, with easy-to-follow lists, examples, and suggested resources.
