Becoming a Successful Urban Teacher
What every urban teacher should know could take years of experience and plenty of mistakes, discouragement, and frustrations along the way. Or it could simply mean learning from other teachers who have been there, done that, and succeeded. Veteran teacher Dave Brown has set out to make the lives of new urban teachers easier by sharing the stories of thirteen successful urban educators from grades one through twelve. These teachers provide practical advice on everything from effective instructional strategies, gaining students' cooperation, and managing a classroom, to developing curricula that match the interests and academic levels of the students they serve.
