Student Voices: What Makes a Great Teacher?
Wednesday, September 14, 2011
As students head back to school this fall, the College Board Advocacy & Policy Center, along with the National Writing Project and Youth Communication, has compiled an exciting new report that helps answer a critical question on school reform: What makes a great teacher? Student Voices: What Makes a Great Teacher? gives students the opportunity to be a part of the national dialogue on education and to provide input on what it takes for teachers to be effective in the classroom.
The report contains five essays by a diverse groups of students about teaching strategies that worked for them and an illustrated poster that summarizes 10 practices that students think are most important for effective teaching.
This effort is part of the College Board Advocacy & Policy Center Teachers Are the Center of Education/Teacher Voices series, which highlights issues of importance to America’s classroom teachers.
