The primary focus of this project is the development of an idea-rich, practical handbook for beginning teachers of elementary school. Current research emphasizes the following six most common problems facing beginning teachers. Appearing in rank order, they are: classroom management, student motivation, assessment, meeting the individual needs of students, developing positive relationships with parents, and handling job stress. There is a chapter dedicated to each of these topics in the handbook, complete with practical strategies, numerous ideas, and suggested activities with accompanying reproducible pages for new teachers to use. Information is presented in check-list or point form whenever possible, and space is provided for the reader to record notes and ideas. All sections of the handbook are supported by a rigorous analysis of current literature on the topic of beginning teaching.
