Good Teacher in Every Classroom by Linda Darling-Hammond
Book DescriptionWhat 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.
