For substitute teachers, virtually every day is the first day of school - new students, new room, new routines, and often a new school building as well. How to Succeed as a Substitute Teacher targets a special audience of educators who regularly walk into brand new classrooms and who must quickly establish a climate for student learning to deliver instruction that will meet established curriculum standards. Cicely Anne Rude focuses on providing short, clear, practical, well-organized, and top-notch guidance for the substitute teacher. The book covers: school and classroom procedures; teaching tips for before, during, and after class; eight key tips for classroom management; 'What Would You Do' practice scenarios with multiple solutions; and professional topics (permits, pay, networking, and more). This guidebook is ideal for practitioners who take pride in being excellent substitute teachers and for educators who hire, train, and supervise them.

"Substitute teachers are courageous educators. Day in and day out, they walk into unfamiliar classrooms and willingly embrace the challenge of creating meaningful learning experiences under stressful conditions. This marvelous book-with its practical tips and valuable insights-is a 'must-read' for these unsung heroes." -- Lynn G. Beck, Dean and Professor
"All the ins and outs of how to be successful as a substitute teacher are revealed in this very readable and practical guide. Rude's numerous and clever teaching and classroom management tips are extremely helpful for novice and seasoned teachers alike." -- Robert Oprandy, Professor of Education
"The book gives substitute teachers value, importance, and worth, something perhaps many of them don't feel and that many school districts and teachers perhaps fail to let the substitute know." -- Elizabeth Day, Sixth-Grade Teacher
"Provides good, solid information to anyone interested in working as a substitute teacher. Covers everything from what to expect as a new substitute teacher to useful resources for experienced substitutes." -- Claudia Schwartz, Director of Field Experiences
"The author has done an excellent job covering this important topic. Not only is the material clear and concise, it is interesting and helpful. Anyone interested in becoming a substitute would benefit from rading this book and carrying it with them as they fill this critical position in schools." -- Jolene Dockstader, Seventh-Grade Language Arts Teacher
"Should be required reading for student teachers and prospective substitute teachers. You can't imagine how helpful the ideas about reporting to the classroom teacher are until you get the 'classes were fine' report from the substitute and something entirely different from the students or the administrator!" -- Deanna Brunlinger, Science Teacher
"The book gives practical and useful suggestions to help anyone who decides to become a substitute teacher. I would buy this book and leave it on my desk with my substitute folder. Substitute teachers will definitely find this book helpful and easy to access." -- Florence Krokos, Teacher
"The author includes a checklist of things to do before, during, and after class, an immense help to anyone just entering a classroom-including a new full-time teacher." -- Beverly Wixon, Language Arts Department Chair
"The book is almost conversational in tone, and one feels confident that the author really knows her stuff!" -- Elizabeth F. Day, Teacher
