Summary: Like your own personal survival guide, Help! I'm Teaching Middle School Science is a nontechnical how-to manual-especially for first-year teachers. But even veteran teachers can benefit from the plentiful ideas, examples, and tips on teaching science the way middle-schoolers learn best. The book covers all the basics:.:.; what to do on the first day of school (including icebreaker activities),.; preparing safe and effective lab lessons,.; managing the classroom,.; working with in-school teams as well as parents. But its practical-and encouraging-approach doesn't mean it shortchanges the basics of effective pedagogy. You'll learn: how to handle cooperative learning and assessment; how to help students write effectively and; the importance of modeling for early adolescents.
