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.
Steven Farr leads Teach For Americaís efforts to discern what distinguishes teachers whose students in low-income communities achieve dramatic academic growth. Those findings inform the organizationís teacher selection, training, and support. Farr also works to build the organizationís knowledge by learning from and sharing with other organizations working toward educational equity.
