Book Description

Based on the experiences of a practicing teacher, Creating Quality in the Classroom focuses on the paradigm shift required by teachers and students to build upon the good things that already happen in the classroom. Successful lesson plans and methods using the tools and techniques as outlined in this book encourage teachers at all levels to put in the time and effort to effect positive change in the classroom.
This interesting and highly readable volume shows how the theory of teaching is put into practice, thus enabling education professionals to review and adapt successful teaching methods and activities to their individual environments. The quality tools and techniques are clearly explained and referenced in an easy-to-use format.
As Federal law requires students to receive a free and appropriate education in the least restrictive environment, quality in the classroom enables all students to benefit-intellectually, socially, and emotionally. This unique book addresses the techniques and practical methods to make this happen.
