"You're a high school substitute? Are you crazy? We were so mean to them!" This is a common reaction when I tell people what I do, but I love substitute teaching at the high school level. I started substitute teaching in 1989, fresh out of college. I was looking for a way to support myself while I was in graduate school. A friend told me, "You have a bachelor's degree, so you can be a substitute teacher." In writing this book, I hope to be as good a friend for you as he was for me. This book explains not only how to get a high school substitute teaching job, but also how to do the job so well that it will be rewarding in and of itself. If you know any college graduates who are unemployed, tell them about this book. It might help them support themselves in the meantime, while they seek employment in their fields. Being an excellent substitute can also open the door to a regular full-time teaching position. Up until the advent of the Internet, most books for substitute teachers consisted largely of worksheets the substitute could photocopy and hand out to students, in the event the regular teacher hadn't left enough work to fill the whole class period. Today, you can instantly find and project one of a million free Internet worksheets. Heck, 99% of today's high school students have phones capable of finding these worksheets. You won't find worksheets in this book. High school students are too smart to do a substitute's ungraded busy work anyway. Today's high school students crave human interaction. I've seen them get more excited about a classroom discussion than about watching a movie. Times have changed, and I have remained a successful high school substitute teacher by embracing the changing times. Give my book a read and let me show you how to be a good high school substitute teacher who enjoys the job.

**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. From the Hardcover edition.
