Everyone remembers having an inspired teacher. But what really made them inspired, what teaching skills do they regularly employ, and how can any teacher become one? Here's a book that answers these questions and describes 13 research-based pathways that teachers can take—regardless of their experience—to grow professionally and aim for truly inspired teaching. From knowing the subject, to solving instructional problems, to showing passion for teaching, the clear steps all teachers can take to gradually improve their skills are revealed in this book, along with a practical strategy for staying on a continuum for ongoing growth.
Written by a seasoned National Board-certified teacher, The Inspired Teacher is filled with classroom examples and tips that teachers can identify with immediately. Plus growth paths for all 13 skill areas help mentors, coaches, and anyone who works with teachers apply these ideas at the school or district level. (ASCD book, 2009) 6" x 9", 256 pages.
