New teachers face many challenges in their first years of teaching. A New Teacher's Guide to Best Practices can help new teachers apply best practices for teaching to improve effectiveness and to achieve professional development goals.

This reflective workbook is full of best-practice tools and strategies. Each chapter focuses on a different teaching challenge, featuring possible solutions to the challenge and in-depth research. Teacher tips and student perspectives from real teachers and students across the country are included, as well as appropriate teacher anecdotes. In addition, each chapter contains worksheets and figures that allow for reflection on the topic, as well as a section for reflections that can be used with a mentor.
