I am starting a new middle school social studies job this fall. Although last year, my first year teaching, I was in a middle school I had some trouble with classroom management. It was only with two of my classes (out of 7) but I want to fix th problem early on this year. I was wondering what your expert opinion is on "The First Days of School: How to Be an Effective Teacher." I have heard it is full of alot of great ideas but before I purchase it I thought I would ask what you thought? Any other suggested reading for a second year teacher?
