For high school student teaching, Jonas offers a set of questions on Handbook for Creative Teaching by David L Martin (Rod & Staff). This is a handbook, but serves well to introduce the initiate to a broad spectrum of topics related to teaching such as how to teach, how children think, practical preparations, preventive and corrective teaching, and more. The chapters are relatively short, easily readable for a high school student, and quite down-to-earth and practical. A few are a bit dated; these can simply be skipped.
Jonas developed the questions below for most of ch. 1-65. His student-teachers completed the questions for several chapters per week in preparation for two sit-down half-hour conferences they had weekly.
Jonas also recommends Gregory’s Seven Laws of Teaching.
