New teachers often experience "reality shock" as they discover that the ideals they learned in college do not match the daily realities of classroom life-especially when they are called upon to begin their careers by working with English language learners in English as a second language (ESL) or English as a foreign language (EFL) settings.

By combining best practices for teacher induction, mentoring, and support with carefully phased-in coverage of the basics of ESL/EFL lesson planning, classroom management, writing, reading, grammar, speaking, listening, vocabulary, and language assessment, this new book offers beginning teachers the reality guide they need. With 104 Exploratory Breaks throughout to provide topics for reflection and discussion with mentors, supervisors, and support providers, this guide will be of interest to any teacher new to working with ESL and EFL learners.

"The practicality of this book is profound. The 'Exploratory Breaks' throughout each chapter provide the reader an opportunity to apply his/her learning in a focused fashion. The author does a superb job of drawing the reader into the need for the information and how to apply it in practical settings." -- Theresa Rouse
"The tone of the text is easy going and relaxed, a welcome break from over-flowery 'academic' language for students ready to enter the 'real world' of the classroom. By using the 'exploratory breaks,' new teachers should find it simple to further the given lesson plans and work them into useful plans for their own classrooms." -- Elise Geither
"Very relevant to the real-life teaching situations that first year teachers often encounter. Citations for teacher resources are included as the reader moves along; I found them excellent for immediate references for teachers who want to read more on the topics. The 'Exploratory Breaks' are also easy to find and are helpful and formatted to be teacher-friendly." -- Joanne Ho
"Offers much background information and many teaching suggestions for those who are just beginning to understand how to help ELLs. Farrell invites interaction by providing numerous 'exploratory breaks' within the book to help readers further internalize what they have just read by talking or writing about it." -- The Reading Teacher, March 2007
"A valuable starting point for new teachers to get acquainted with fundamental facets of English language teaching." -- The Asian EFL Journal, June 2008, Vol. 10(2)
