AUTHOR

MORE INFO

First Day to Final Grade: A Graduate Student’s Guide to Teaching is designed to help new graduate student teaching assistants navigate the challenges of teaching undergraduates. Both a quick reference tool and a fluid read, the book focuses on the “how tos,” such as setting up a lesson plan, running a discussion, and grading, as well as issues specific to the teaching assistant’s unique role as both student and teacher.
 
This new edition incorporates newer teaching and learning pedagogy. The authors have modified sections on moving from class goals to class content, preparing for and running discussions, addressing problems within the class and with particular students, and responding to academic misconduct. In addition, the book has been updated to reflect the role of technology both inside and outside the classroom. Also included are new examples of materials throughout the text and the appendices.
