Every year, more than 100,000 new teachers enter classrooms for the first time.  Some have gone through a formal teacher training program; others have been hired on an emergency basis and have had no training at all.   In A Good Teacher in Every Classroom: Preparing the Highly Qualified Teachers Our Children Deserve, authors Linda Darling-Hammond and Joan Baratz-Snowden examine the need for all teachers to be highly qualified and properly trained to lead a classroom.  This information-packed book summarizes research on learning, teaching and teacher education before offering a set of core ideas and skills necessary for pre-professionals to acquire in order to be highly qualified to teach. 

The authors describe:

  • What beginning teachers need to know before they enter the classroom
  • Best practices for acquiring the knowledge and skills of a highly qualified teacher
  • Policies needed to ensure that beginning teachers enter the classroom ready to teach

This book provides a comprehensive blueprint for all teacher training programs, which must equip teachers with critical knowledge and skills, including an understanding of how teaching and learning work; how to manage classroom behavior; how to develop curriculum and assess learning; and how to educate and connect with children of diverse backgrounds and cultures. 

A valuable resource for use in teacher training programs and as a guide for pre-professionals and new teachers.
