Problem: You feel shaky about being assigned to teach upper-level science and math and need to get up to speed—fast. Solution: Follow this concise book’s tried-and-true methods, which you can integrate into your classroom and lesson plans starting from the first day of class.

You Want Me to Teach What? avoids long discussions of education theory and specific lesson plans. Instead, it concentrates on general techniques for approaching a variety of problems and enhancing your teaching skills in science and math. It covers student psychology, classroom management, planning, instruction, problem-solving techniques, laboratory methods and reporting, assessment, and professional development. Without feeling inundated, you’ll find a wealth of sensible guidance—whether you’re a preservice education major wanting to teach physical science or mathematics, a new teacher looking for practical methods to integrate into your instruction, or an experienced teacher in search of fresh ways to improve in the classroom.
