9780393351088: Building a Better Teacher: How Teaching Works (and How to Teach It to Everyone)

A New York Times Book Review Notable Book

"A must-read book for every American teacher and taxpayer." ―Amanda Ripley, author of The Smartest Kids in the World

Launched with a hugely popular New York Times Magazine cover story, Building a Better Teacher sparked a national conversation about teacher quality and established Elizabeth Green as a leading voice in education. Green's fascinating and accessible narrative dispels the common myth of the "natural-born teacher" and introduces maverick educators exploring the science behind their art. Her dramatic account reveals that great teaching is not magic, but a skill―a skill that can be taught. Now with a new afterword that offers a guide on how to identify―and support―great teachers, this provocative and hopeful book "should be part of every new teacher’s education" (Washington Post).

About the Author:

Elizabeth Green is cofounder, CEO, and editor in chief of Chalkbeat, a nonprofit education news organization. A former Spencer Fellow at the Columbia School of Journalism, she has written for New York Times Magazine and other publications.

Review:

“Couldn't be better timed...exhilarating.”
- Sara Mosle, The Atlantic

“Moments of educational theater enliven and illuminate the history.”
- Kate Tuttle, Boston Globe

“Both a history of the research on effective teaching as well as a consideration of how that research might best be implemented. What emerges is the gaping chasm between what the best teachers do and how we go about evaluating what they’ve done.”
- Sebastian Stockman, New York Times Book Review

“Green has spent years looking at what makes a great teacher―and whether the teachers we remember most fondly were born great or simply learned key skills.”
- Greg Toppo, USA Today

“[S]hould be part of every new teacher's education.”
- Michael S. Roth, The Washington Post

“Elizabeth Green draws upon years of interviews and research as an education writer and CEO of Chalkbeat to make the case for why teaching is a craft and that it can be taught to anyone. Her excellent book should be read for a detailed account of the history of teacher education, an international context, and an entertaining narrative.”
- Jonathan Wai, Psychology Today

“We romanticize teachers, and we vilify them, but we don't do much to help. This beautifully written, defiantly hopeful book points the way to a better future for American teachers and the children they teach.”
- Paul Tough, best-selling author of How Children Succeed

“Elizabeth Green reveals, in cinematic detail, what makes great teaching such a dazzling intellectual challenge―and why it has taken us so unforgivably long to care. A must-read book for every American teacher and taxpayer.”
- Amanda Ripley, author of The Smartest Kids in the World

Descripción WW Norton & Co. Paperback. Estado de conservación: new. BRAND NEW, Building a Better Teacher: How Teaching Works (and How to Teach it to Everyone), Elizabeth Green, Everyone agrees that a great teacher can have an enormous impact. Yet we still don't know what, precisely, makes a teacher great. Is it a matter of natural-born charisma? Or does exceptional teaching require something more? Building a Better Teacher introduces a new generation of educators exploring the intricate science underlying their art. A former principal studies the country's star teachers and discovers a set of common techniques that help children pay attention. Two math teachers videotape a year of lessons and develop an approach that has nine-year-olds writing sophisticated mathematical proofs. A former high school teacher works with a top English instructor to pinpoint the key interactions a teacher must foster to initiate a rich classroom discussion. Through their stories, and the hilarious and heartbreaking theater that unfolds in the classroom every day, Elizabeth Green takes us on a journey into the heart of a profession that impacts every child in America. What happens in the classroom of a great teacher? Opening with a moment-by-moment portrait of an everyday math lesson-a drama of urgent decisions and artful maneuvers-Building a Better Teacher demonstrates the unexpected complexity of teaching. Green focuses on the questions that really matter: How do we prepare teachers and what should they know before they enter the classroom? How does one get young minds to reason, conjecture, prove, and understand? What are the keys to good discipline? Incorporating new research from cognitive psychologists and education specialists as well as intrepid classroom entrepreneurs, Green provides a new way for parents to judge what their children need in the classroom and considers how to scale good ideas. Ultimately, Green discovers that good teaching is a skill. A skill that can be taught. A provocative and hopeful book, Building a Better Teacher shows that legendary teachers are more than inspiring; they are perhaps the greatest craftspeople of all.
