April 27, 2012

We talk a lot about what it means to be an effective learner. The flip side of that is what it takes to be an effective teacher.

Here are five outstanding resources on teacher effectiveness:

Increasing Teacher Effectiveness (2nd ed.) by Lorin W Anderson – published by UNESCO

Accelerating College and Career Readiness in States: Teacher Effectiveness – from Achieve

Best Practices for Teacher Effectiveness – from the National Council on Teacher Quality

Promoting Teacher Effectiveness in Adult Education – from the U.S. Department of Education

Instructor Competencies for Adult Education (Draft) – from the American Institute for Research
