Message from the Author
While new teachers may say they need classroom management skills, what they really need to know is how to design rigorous and appropriately scaffolded lessons and how to create learning-centered classrooms where high-level engagement and learning can occur. We must help new teachers  learn that the end they should have in mind for  their students is not that  they are well-managed, but that they are well-educated.
