What Makes a Great Teacher?

When I sat down this morning to update our blog, I had planned to talk about reading strategies.  However, my early morning journal reading changed my mind.  The article I am linking comes from the January-February The Atlantic and poses some very interesting insights.  It also causes you to stop and think about what goes on in the classroom.

Here is the link:  http://www.theatlantic.com/doc/print/201001/good-teaching?x=39&y=2.  What are your thoughts?  I’ve set up a Wallwisher account for you to share your thinking.  Please take a minute to read and respond to this article; I think the article is a valuable read for all of us in today’s educational landscape of No Child Left Behind and Race to the Top.
