Each summer, teachers send home to parents a list of school supplies students will need during the upcoming school year. Until now, however, little thought has been given to the school supplies teachers might find useful. Noted educator Howard Seeman corrects that oversight with this back-to-school list for the well-equipped teacher. Included: Twenty-seven must-have items.
Veteran teachers will tell you that every year they realize there's another little thing they could carry with them, or keep in their desk, to help them with their teaching. By the time a good teacher has been teaching five years, he or she has learned to be well equipped.
Why wait years? Below is a list of items -- most of which you can easily carry in a pencil case -- that will be very helpful for your teaching this year.
