Developing the Next Generation of Highly Qualified Teachers

What kind of experiences do children need in order to grow and learn? What kind of knowledge do teachers need in order to facilitate these experiences for children? And what kind of experiences do teachers need to develop this knowledge? A Good Teacher in Every Classroom addresses these questions by examining the core concepts and central pedagogies that should be at the heart of any teacher education program—and recommends the policy changes needed to ensure that all teachers gain access to this knowledge. This book is the result of a blue-ribbon commission sponsored by the National Academy of Education.

With two million teachers entering the workforce in the next decade, A Good Teacher in Every Classroom offers a blueprint for educating this new generation of teachers. The book is filled with solid recommendations for helping new teachers develop a basic understanding of education, teaching, and learning. And, it explains why and how teachers must learn to connect with different cultures, develop curriculum that meets students' learning needs, manage common behavior problems, and assess academic progress.
