From the book’s introduction:

When the editors of Rethinking Schools first conceived of The New Teacher Book, we thought back to our days as new teachers. We hoped to create the book we needed in those sometimes exhilarating, sometimes lonely, often hard first days of our teaching careers.

This book is meant as a conversation among colleagues. We hope it is a conversation that helps you keep your vision and values intact as you work in institutions that may or may not be the citadels of idealism where you imaged yourself teaching.

Our opening chapter explores how to “start strong” by building community so that students feel safe to take intellectual risks and ask tough questions, develop empathy by listening to their classmates’ stories, gain knowledge by engaging with a curriculum that puts their lives at the center, and embrace their own and others’ cultures, histories and languages.

Read an excerpt from the book, “Creating Community Out of Chaos” by Linda Christensen.
