Your First 30 Minutes – The ABC’s of Successful Classroom Management
Authors
Lynne D. Colson
Delores L. McCollum

Artist – T. Gale Woods

The first 30 minutes of the first day of school are the most critical minutes of the entire school year.  The teacher's level of success will be determined by how well s/he takes charge and manages the classroom during this important time.

Your First 30 Minutes – The ABC’s of Successful Classroom Management provides practical strategies that will empower teachers to create a safe, orderly and excellent learning environment in their classrooms. It addresses, with honesty and humor, the issues that teachers must manage on a daily basis, many of which are rarely discussed in college level education classes or professional development seminars.

IF Bible Stories Were Reported in Today’s Headlines . . . is a Study Guide that creatively borrows from contemporary media reporting styles, to imagine 21st century “headlines” for Bible stories and verses. This book is for the novice Bible student who is eager to grow in The Word, and the seasoned Bible student who regularly seeks to learn more about The Holy Bible. The idea for this book came from a frequent Jeopardy® category, “____ (books, movie titles, songs, etc.) in Other Words”. It grew into an activity for women traveling to a Michigan Christian women’s conference, and developed into this book.
