Research shows that time invested during the first three weeks of school to teach Routines, Rubrics, and Rules-the three R's-leads to higher student achievement throughout the remaining 33 weeks of school, or 3 + 3 = 33.
This wonderfully practical and effective new book from bestselling author Elaine McEwan will help any teacher through those critical weeks and show how truly "with-it" teachers (WITs) can manage more easily the three critical facets of every teacher's day: classroom management and organization, student engagement, and time management.
Loaded with specifics, WITs from K-12 classrooms share their personal routines, rubrics and rules to help you survive and thrive in those first three weeks of school, including
Designing and organizing your classroom to support learning
Teaching routines, rubrics, and rules to maximize learning time
Creating organizational, academic, and social routines
Choosing rules and rewards to build character and motivation
Using the "With-It" teacher list, including attention-getters, noise-breakers, timesavers, routines, and homework helpers
With the power of 3 + 3 = 33-and the secrets of WITs-you can chart a sure-footed course for those all-important first weeks of school, and help guide your students successfully through the school year!
