Teaching As Leadership: The Highly Effective Teacher's Guide to Closing the Achievement Gap
A road map for teachers who strive to be highly effective leaders in our nation's classrooms
Teach For America has fought the daunting battle of educational equity for the last twenty years. Based on evidence from classrooms across the country, they've discovered much about effective teaching practice, and distilled these findings into the six principles presented in this book. The Teaching As Leadership framework inspires teachers to: Set Big Goals; Invest Students and Their Families; Plan Purposefully; Execute Effectively; Continuously Increase Effectiveness; Work Relentlessly. The results are better educational outcomes for our nation's children, particularly those who live in low-income communities.
An accompanying website includes a wealth of tools, videos, sample lessons, discussion boards, and case studies.
