55 Teaching Dilemmas

55 Teaching Dilemmas gives teachers specific, practical ideas for conquering a variety of common challenges: managing classroom time, supporting struggling students, preventing burnout, communicating with parents, motivating students, leading effectively inside and outside the classroom, and much more.


To teach with excellence demands more than strategies and techniques. The most successful teachers draw on their personal power—their confidence, compassion, and empathy, and their professional power—their ability to lead, instruct, and inspire their students to do their best. With practice, most teachers can develop the skills they need to conquer almost any classroom challenge. This book offers specific, practical ideas to help teachers:
- manage their classroom time efficiently;
- educate with passion and enthusiasm;
- support students who are struggling;
- motivate with creativity and humor;
- lead effectively both inside the classroom and out.

In 55 Teaching Dilemmas, Kathy Paterson also shows readers how to counsel students in need, how to recognize and prevent burnout, how to communicate with parents and guardians, and how to encourage cooperative learning among students with different capabilities and skills.
