    1. Good overview for new graduate student instructors easy and simple read, including how to lead effective discussions, grading and managing teaching with other responsibilities.


    2. Very helpful for graduate students who may receive little to no guidance in their teaching assistantships As with most books of this nature, some topics address issues that are out of the graduate student s control, but will nevertheless be helpful for the future Chapters cover a wide range of topics from designing a syllabus, weekly preparation, and running a discussion, to office hours and balancing student teaching life.
