From SURVIVING to THRIVING:
Mastering the Art of  the Elementary Classroom

Teachers, both new and experienced, and those who prepare teachers, will appreciate this useful guide in mastering the art of the elementary classroom. This resource provides a framework for tasks and dispositions that are part of a thriving elementary classroom community. Although not a theory book, From Surviving to Thriving provides explanations and rationales in a context for the activities, strategies and tools it suggests. Chapter contents include subject areas such as communication (with parents as well as school personnel); finding resources to enrich the learning experience; organization; building community in the classroom; and attending to the diverse needs of learners. A CD is included that contains lists, letters, student and family activities, recommended literature, lesson plans and PowerPoint presentations that are ready for use.
