This book is not helpful. I feel like this book is that friend who has no idea what teaching is like and just wants to be supportive, but has no real advice or anything useful to say. Had to purchase it for a class and can't wait to be rid of it. Instead of discussing how to effectively use technology, etc. it's more like,

BOOK: Technology in the classroom - there's technology and you can use it!

ME: Gee, thanks. Anything else?

BOOK: There's email and PowerPoint!

ME: ...

BOOK: There will be ethical dilemmas in the classroom you will have to deal with!

ME: Oh, yeah that's what I wanted to talk to you about. Any suggestions for how to deal with those?

BOOK: Here are some different dilemmas you might face!

ME: Go on. What are some appropriate responses?

BOOK: The next 3 pages will briefly tell you about plagiarism!

ME: ...Okay...I mean, I already have a pretty good handle on pl...oh never mind.
