"You're a high school substitute? Are you crazy? We were so mean to them!" This is a common reaction when I tell people what I do, but I love substitute teaching at the high school level.This book will give ideas on how to deal with students. I didn't like how she separated the underclassmen (9th and 10th graders) and upperclassmen (11th and 12th graders). She treats the underclassmen like children and the upperclassmen as adults. I do not have experience teaching or substituting these age groups, but I would imagine to get better behavior from the underclassmen one should treat them as adults as well. Purely opinion, though. I could be wrong.
Definitely a good read if you are planning on becoming a high school substitute teacher. If you have substituted middle or elementary students don't just think it is the same!
