Aha Loved it The Pike kids never cease to make me collapse into peals of laughter Interesting concept, but not the most believable story Kirsty s part of the story is better because it makes sense and addresses important ideas about dealing with people you may not like however, I feel it was exaggerated in some aspects Mallory s part just does not ring true for me I don t think she would have been that unprepared or so upset by a little name calling I think it could have been handled much better and in a way that would have felt true to her character and to the spirit of what these books should be.

While the plot was great, it was very unrealistic Student teachers don t even get as much freedom as the SMS students Plus, the teachers would have to be monitoring the student teachers. Fantastic books for young girls getting into reading Great stories about friendship and life lessons The characters deal with all sorts of situations and often find responsible solutions to problems.I loved this series growing up and wanted to start my own babysitting business with friends Great lessons in entrepreneurship for tweens.The books may be dated with out references to modern technology but the story stands and lessons are still relevant.Awesome books that girls will love And the series grows with them Terrific Author The Baby sitters Club series was my favorite growing up In which K Ron thinks she knows about being a gym teacher than the gym teacher, and Mel ry earns her Spaz Girl nickname I love Cary Retlin. Kristy and Mallory are emotionally scarred by a teach for a day program.Stoneybrook Middle School introduces an extra credit program called Teachers Of Tomorrow TOT wherein students teach classes During TOT week, each volunteer student is assigned to a class, where they have to prepare three lesson plans and teach three times Kristy volunteers because she thinks she can do a better job than the adults and would like to show how bad they are by her shining example She is assigned to teach a seventh grade gym class She s annoyed to have work with her nemesis, Cary Retlin, who is teaching the boys gym class Despite her lofty intentions, she immediately becomes a shrill, whistle blowing gym teacher caricature Normally things would end there, but this book takes it over the top somehow things get so bad that three kids end up in the hospital Meanwhile, Mallory is assigned to teach an eighth grade English class because she is JUST SO GOOD at English that she is apparently qualified to teach a class two years above her Predictably, the older students don t take her seriously, she can t control the classrom, and her classes become a nightmare of savage bullying to the point where I feel like I m reading one of those hatefics where Wesley Crusher s slow death is described in exquisite detail Lingering Questions Why do the TOT volunteers have to teach 3 times It seems like the program would make sense if it was once mayyybe several times but spread out three times within one week makes no sense for anything except narrative convenience Why does the book go out of its way to point out that the students cannot choose which subject they teach I honestly don t see how anyone would ever sign up if they couldn t pick at least the subject, since most students have pretty strong subject preferences Even adults get to choose what subject they teach Even as far as the book goes, Kristy and Mallory both get their subject of choice, so why not make it part of the plot that they could choose that Why do the teachers administration blame Kristy, Cary, and Mallory for the disastrous but entirely predictable results of the TOT program I get that in Kristy s case, this book is intended to be a lesson about hubris she thought it would be so easy but it wasn t but I feel like the teachers show alarming levels of irresponsibility by allowing things to get so out of control They don t even intervene when the classes begin to devolve into physical violence And in Mallory s case, there is no lesson, not even from a narrative perspective Things went exactly as she predicted she knew the eighth graders would eat her for lunch, and they did She expressed her concerns to the teachers, was ignored, and spoiler for future books was driven out of school on a rail What did the TOT program runners think was going to happen Why is this not a Mallory book Mallory s is the far emotional storyline It honestly feels like Mallory s story is the main one, and Kristy s is the B plot runner afterthought In fact, Mallory s storyline winds up having lingering consequences for her character that unfold over the next several books, while Kristy never thinks about her time as a TOT teacher again.Timing No temporal markers during the school year I actually would have guessed that this type of program would occur late in the year, maybe springtime, but the previous book took place in August so I guess this must be September This seems like a highly unusual program to run in September, but I guess it s highly unusual in general.Revised Timeline The school focused books are tricky now that the girls are graduated from college by my estimation Maybe this book is actually secretly showing how things go when Kristy and Mallory become teachers at an age appropriate time Kristy has gotten a classroom aide job after graduation, or maybe she is student teaching while pursuing her master s in education Mallory would still be an undergrad junior at this point, but let s say she s in a rigorous teacher training program, and she coincidentally also finds herself in front of a classroom for the first time this semester in an unrelated experiential education program Teaching is difficult in practice than either of them expected, and they commiserate it s not until the end of the book that Kristy realizes that her rocky first year of student teaching has taught her a lot and strengthened her resolve to be a good teacher, but Mallory s has been so bad that it drove her out of the profession altogether. stoneybrook middle school continues its impressive run as world s worst middle school by introducing the teachers of tomorrow program in exchange for extra credit, interested students can apply to be student teachers for a week they will have to go to two days of training, submit lesson plans, carry on with the curricula already being taught by the teachers for whom they are covering so it s not COMPLETELY illegal some lip service is given to the fact that public school curricula is in fact something that is overseen by a department of education kristy is of course boiling over with enthusiasm for the idea you know how she loves to boss people around she wants to be the school principal, in fact, but is informed that she ll have to settle for a teaching gig like everyone else.some members of the babysitters club are excited about the project mary anne is interested, as is stacey, assuming that she can teach a math class abby could use the extra credit, but isn t interested in taking on the extra work jessi doesn t think she has time with a new ballet class she s taking claudia, of course, has zero interest mallory is beyond pumped she is hoping to get assigned to an english class.the interested students are asked to suggest classes they might be interested in teaching on their applications because kristy can t be the principal, she suggests something in the athletic department because she likes sports she has always gotten along well with the seventh grade girls gym teacher, ms walden but then ms walden yells at her for running in the hallway kristy starts thinking about how ms walden is kind of mean to the less athletic kids, which doesn t do much to build up their interest in sports kristy thinks that she ll swoop in show ms walden that everyone can learn to love gym class if their teacher is encouraging displays a positive attitude.kristy also decides that lesson plans are a great ideabut not for gym class there s so much moving around unpredictability in gym, lesson plans will just get in the way she briefly contemplates forcing the other members of the babysitters club to develop babysitting plans for each of their sitting jobs i bet that would go over like a lead balloon luckily, she recognizes that little kids are too unpredictable for babysitting lessons plans to be feasible.kristy is totally bummed to learn that ms walden s gym class is being combined with mr deyoung s boys gym class, which will also be led by a student teacher that student is cary retlin yay, cary as we know, kristy cary don t really get along that well, mostly because cary is always taking the piss out of kristy kristy decides to basically ignore cary, do her own thing, hope he falls in line.ps stacey got the math class she wanted mary anne is teaching social studies though you d think mary anne would shy away from teaching because it involves being the center of attention mallory was assigned to an english class an EIGHTH GRADE english class she is panicked over the possibility that she won t be able to get older kids to take her seriously.kristy comes up with an alternative warm up routine for the kids, complete with music she starts walking the kids through it, but cary diverts everyone by starting a conga line kristy almost has an aneurysm trying to get everyone back in line following her directions, but she runs out of time has to start the soccer game once again, cary clowns around, running away with the ball the kids run after him don t listen to kristy kristy is pissed she thinks she could have taught a truly revolutionary gym class if cary hadn t undermined her.ms walden asks to see kristy the next day ms walden points out that class didn t go well she asks to see kristy s lesson plan kristy admits she didn t make a lesson plan she didn t think she had to for a gym class ms walden says she most certainly expects kristy to start making lesson plans coordinating the classes with cary she tells kristy that she can t get extra credit without the lesson plans.so kristy puts together a detailed lesson plan she meets up with cary the next day in school shows it to him he points out that her lesson plan is unrealistic that she d be working the students like they re robots his lesson plan is a lot casual kristy considers it sloppy she again decides to do her own thing ignore cary.during warm ups, kristy gets upset because cary is doing the exercises off rhythm confusing the class she hands out soccer assignments, breaking the kids into two teams, but the kids rebel insist on forming their own teams kristy permits this then selects the tougher, athletic looking team for herseal, leaving the smaller, skinnier kids for cary what she didn t count on is that the smaller kids all wanted to be on a team together because they take karate classes in stamford together they start pulling karate moves on kristy s team eventually a full blown knock down drag out fight ensues one girl gets a black eye, a boy loses a tooth, another girl breaks her arm it s a complete disaster ms walden mr deyoung tear cary kristy some new assholes tell them they have one chance to prove they can work together or they are out of the program for good kristy protests that she cary don t get along ms walden says, so what do you think teachers like each other all the time they don t, but they have to work together anyway kristy s mind is blown kristy comes up with the idea of a passathon for the next class the kids have to pass the soccer ball to other kids, if a kid misses, the person who passed to them is out she hopes this will encourage cooperation she allows cary to lead the warm ups everything goes swimmingly kristy cary call a truce that s pretty much that i guess kristy learns that teaching isn t as easy as it looks.as does mallory, who is so nervous teaching eighth graders that she just constantly embarrasses herself, dropping papers breaking chalk freezing in the face of smart aleck remarks soon the kids are calling her spaz girl, before long, the nickname is all over the school there s even a scene in which mallory answers to it i don t know if that was intentional on the part of the ghostwriter or what this sets the stage for mallory s transfer to boarding school in a couple of books.in the B plot, vanessa pike has caught teacher fever has started her own poetry school her students are margo, nicky, claire unfortunately, she s a real bossy britches the kids don t want to go to her school she won t let them quit though she blackmails them with inside info she has on their various misdeeds, threatening to tattle on them to mr mrs pike if they don t sit through her classes the kids finally fight back, tricking her into trying on some play handcuffs, then cuffing her, gagging her, stuffing her behind an armchair abby rescues her asks her who her favorite teacher was why vanessa reports that her favorite teacher instilled a love of learning in her because she was always nice encouraging abby asks vanessa to teach her about poetry using the methods of her favorite teacher nicky, margo, claire overhear the new improved vanessa pike teaching method decide to rejoin her poetry school crisis averted the best thing about this subplot is when claudia is babysitting vanessa gives a big speech about how spelling is overrated because poetry is about how words sound, claudia is like, yeah finally someone feels me on this claudia gets way into vanessa s poetry school because vanessa doesn t care about spelling.
