Building a Better Teacher

Aug 26, 2014

Think about that one teacher who had the biggest impact on your education. What skills or qualities did that person have that other teachers didn’t? What would it mean for America’s future if we could impart the expertise of all those best teachers to every other classroom instructor? In a new book, the journalist Elizabeth Green sets out to define a concrete set of best practices any teacher can learn and apply in the classroom. Green joins us Tuesday to make her case for building a better teacher.
