Introduction to Linux - A Hands on Guide
This guide was created as an overview of the Linux Operating System, geared toward new users as an exploration tour and getting started guide, with exercises at the end of each chapter.
For more advanced trainees it can be a desktop reference, and a collection of the base knowledge needed to proceed with system and network administration. This book contains many real life examples derived from the author's experience as a Linux system and network administrator, trainer and consultant. They hope these examples will help you to get a better understanding of the Linux system and that you feel encouraged to try out things on your own.

I just started a class in Linux, and our professor ask us to create a batch script in Linux.
Where can I get help learning about scripting batch files in Linux?

Those come up as two of the first hits in Google for "linux bash scripting tutorials"...a basic search for what you need is always a good first step. We'll be happy to help you with your scripting, but when asking for assistance, PLEASE post the code that you have written FIRST, and tell us where you're stuck.
And it is BASH script not "batch". No worries, but just for correctness sake. And Batch was what was previously used for Windows. Linux generally does not have that term, instead it has the general concept of shell script, one form of which is BASH.
The links provided above are probably the same ones I have in my signature for the BASH guides. I also have a blog, also a link in my signature offering some tips as you get more advanced with scripting and need to debug or use some techniques to accomplish more complex scripts.
