Substitute teaching is one of the least glamorous areas of the teaching profession. Everyone remembers the day their class made the sub cry or refused to do work the sub assigned, or worse, because the teacher was "just a sub". This book focuses the reader's attention on the problems faced by a substitute teacher in Canadian classrooms. The purpose of this book is threefold. First, it describes some of the difficulties and frustrations which many substitute teachers face on a daily basis. Second, I give brief examples describing the problems, the frustrations and, in some cases, the humour as seen by a real substitute teacher. And third, in a section called, "In a Perfect World", I provide suggestions outlining ways that many of the difficulties described could be alleviated, either by the classroom teacher, the school administration, or by the school board staff.

**A New York Times Bestseller** “May be the most revealing depiction of the American contemporary classroom that we have to date." —Garret Keizer, The New York Times Book Review Bestselling author Nicholson Baker, in pursuit of the realities of American public education, signed up as a substitute teacher in a Maine public school district. In 2014, after a brief orientation course and a few fingerprinting sessions, Nicholson Baker became an on-call substitute teacher in a Maine public school district. He awoke to the dispatcher’s five-forty a.m. phone call and headed to one of several nearby schools; when he got there, he did his best to follow lesson plans and help his students get something done. What emerges from Baker’s experience is a complex, often touching deconstruction of public schooling in America: children swamped with overdue assignments, overwhelmed by the marvels and distractions of social media and educational technology, and staff who weary themselves trying to teach in step with an often outmoded or overly ambitious standard curriculum. In Baker’s hands, the inner life of the classroom is examined anew—mundane worksheets, recess time-outs, surprise nosebleeds, rebellions, griefs, jealousies, minor triumphs, kindergarten show-and-tell, daily lessons on everything from geology to metal tech to the Holocaust—as he and his pupils struggle to find ways to get through the day. Baker is one of the most inventive and remarkable writers of our time, and Substitute, filled with humor, honesty, and empathy, may be his most impressive work of nonfiction yet.

ADVANCE PRAISE FOR "SUB CULTURE": A must-read in todays teaching world. Geoffrey Smith, Director, Substitute Teaching Division of STEDI.org Required reading with a due date of ?Çÿimmediately! William Zimmerman, Iona College, Education Department A hilarious and touching book. Barbara Pressman, Author of Substitute Teaching from A to Z, Florida Atlantic University. College of Education A witty and revealing look into a neglected corner of the educational system. Peter Rudiak-Gould, Author of Surviving Paradise. In damning detail and side-splitting humor, Carolyn Bucior brings observations from her own weekly adventures as a substitute teacher in suburban public schools to bear on important questions of policy and ethics in U.S. public schools. Raegen Miller, Associate Director for Education Research, Center for American Progress As a storyteller, Carolyn Bucior offers that rare (and delicious) combination of wit and depth. In Sub Culture, she uses her narrative gifts to teach us about a phenomenon that will scare the hell out of anybody who cares about the education of children. Lary Bloom, New York Times contributing writer and author of The Writer Within Sub Culture surprises you; its funny, true and refreshingly honest, then goes further by revealing things I always suspected but never knew about schools and kids. Its a great read for anybody who cares about life and education. Lisa Holewa, Author of What Kindergarten Teachers KnowA mid-life career change introduced me to a quirky profession where many employees receive no training, are given enormous responsibilities, solicit sex from minors, and suffer unfortunate events, like having their hair set on fire. The pay averages $14,400 per year. When author and teacher Frank McCourt wrote that teachers are the downstairs maid of professions, he tipped his hand. Like many educators, he had forgotten the substitute teachers in the sub-basement. ?ÇªThus begins Sub Culture, an educators memoir that exposes a national crisis within education, and offers solutions across the board. Journalist and mother Carolyn Bucior challenges the status quo in this dusty corner of education. In this startling and revealing book, she offers readers front-row seats as she substitute teaches in various K-12 classrooms (PE, English language learners, high-school chemistry, cooking, multi-age and traditional classrooms), then meets with national experts in teacher absenteeism and substitute teaching in order to make sense of the disturbingly unorthodox world in which she finds herself working. Take your own seat at the front of the class and learn why?ÇªSubstitute teaching is costly. The U.S. spends $4 billion a year on subs. Substitute teachers are ineffective. Subs are 10 percent as effective as regular classroom teachers, yet they lead a years worth of a students K-12 education. Substitute teaching is dangerous. Subs have had their coffee spiked with hand sanitizer, been struck repeatedly in the head with a dodgeball, been sentenced to 40 years in prison when school computers displayed pornography?Çª and more. Substitute teachers are dangerous. Subs have stolen money from school offices, sexually assaulted students, told children Santa Claus is make believe ?Çªand more. Shockingly, 56 percent of school districts never interview substitute teachers face-to-face.Teacher absenteeism is unacceptable. Teachers are out of the classroom about two weeks per yearthe very point at which student achievement suffers. U.S. teacher absences are: significantly higher than those in the U.K.; highest on Fridays; and hurting urban students most. Solutions can begin immediately and at low-cost. Researchers and education experts nationwide offer solutions geared specifically for school administrators, school board members, substitute teachers, regular teachers, policymakers, schools of education, PTOs, and parents of K-12 students.

But even this multi-tentacled, yellow-spotted, one-eyed monster's cautionary tales about the consequences of mischief-making can't seem to change the students' wicked ways until he reveals the spookiest and most surprising story of all: his own.

The demonstrations capture interest, teach, inform, fascinate, amaze, and perhaps, most importantly, involve students in chemistry. Nowhere else will you find books that answer, "How come it happens? . . . Is it safe? . . . What do I do with all the stuff when the demo is over?" Shakhashiri and his collaborators offer 282 chemical demonstrations arranged in 11 chapters. Each demonstration includes seven sections: a brief summary, a materials list, a step-by-step account of procedures to be used, an explanation of the hazards involved, information on how to store or dispose of the chemicals used, a discussion of the phenomena displayed and principles illustrated by the demonstration, and a list of references. You'll find safety emphasized throughout the book in each demonstration.
