Strategies are practical and easy to use Research is up-to-date and informative Ideas and theories are clearly explained
I attended the first training on Supporting New Teachers in October and had to wait for the release of this book. It is excellent and exceeded my expectations. I read the entire book in one sitting. It is filled with usable, simple, and powerful ways to support new teachers. I can't wait to implement it into my work with teachers earning their alternative licenses. Thanks Tina Boogren!
