Changing standards, new assessments, and technology in the classroom can overwhelm today's teachers and students. Melanie Mayer re-ignites the passion and joy in the profession as she shares her own classroom experiences, lessons, instructional and management strategies, and delightful student examples. Mayer's frank, honest and funny account of her own initial resistance to change morphs into a masterful guide and must-read for today's teachers of all ages. If you've ever thought, Well, that sounds good in theory, but how does it look in my classroom? this book is for you. Practical ideas teachers can use now include step-by-step methods for writing instruction; why and how we must still teach literature; procedures for using feedback like coaches do; and suggestions that promote lifelong learning for both teachers and students. She also reveals how her understanding of grace manifests itself in her daily approach to teaching. Passionate, honest, and personal, Miles To Go is a book for those entering the profession, teachers currently in the trenches, and anyone who has ever wondered how teachers do it and why it's worth it.
