The purpose of this guide is to pass on to new teachers the keys to opening the school year successfully. Providing assistance in planning for the first two weeks of school, and offering a wide assortment of activities from which to choose, the text guides the teacher in using the first month of school as a foundation for creating a rich learning environment for the rest of the year. Classroom management, the first day of school, student assessment, and parent communication are all covered in detail. The authors also offer an approach to long term planning and provide short term, minute by minute planning as well. Incorporating the input of many new and veteran teachers, Key to the Classroom's Second Edition offers greater detail and a more expanded format than the popular original text.
