CHOICE Review

Preservice teachers offer more than 325 scenarios of their actual experiences with teachers in elementary school, high school, and college. Orange's book is based on the negative experiences of these preservice teachers. The scenarios are arranged into six sections: "Discipline," "Teacher-Student Relations," "Classroom Policies and Practices," "Classroom Management and Instruction," "Personality and Professionalism," and "Teaching Styles and Behavior." Within each section are the 25 biggest mistakes represented in the 325 scenarios. For instance, in the section on discipline, four mistakes and 47 related scenarios are presented. The scenarios are shown as they were written. Each was analyzed to identify key issues and seminal problems. An Rx symbol signals the analyses the author offers for each scenario, based on the author's teaching, research, personal experiences, readings of relevant literature, and interactions with students and colleagues. The book should be an important teaching tool for preservice teachers, practicing teachers, administrators, and others concerned with effective teaching. G. E. Pawlas; University of Central Florida
