Women of the Day
by Ursula Wolfe-Rocca
A high school teacher looks at how a daily activity focusing on the representation of women helped transform her classroom.

Introducing the New, New Teacher Book
“We need teachers who want to work in a place where human connections matter more than profit. We also wrote this book because we have had days — many days — where our teaching aspirations did not meet the reality of the chaos we encountered. We have experienced those late afternoons crying-alone-in-the-classroom kind of days when a lesson failed or we felt like our students hosted a party in the room and we were the uninvited guests. We wrote this book hoping it might offer solace and comfort on those long days when young teachers wonder if they are cut out to be a teacher at all.”
