Developing the Next Generation of Highly Qualified Teachers

What kind of experiences do children need in order to grow andlearn? What kind of knowledge do teachers need in order tofacilitate these experiences for children? And what kind ofexperiences do teachers need to develop this knowledge? A GoodTeacher in Every Classroom addresses these questions by examiningthe core concepts and central pedagogies that should be at theheart of any teacher education program—and recommends thepolicy changes needed to ensure that all teachers gain access tothis knowledge. This book is the result of a blue-ribbon commissionsponsored by the National Academy of Education.

With two million teachers entering the workforce in the nextdecade, A Good Teacher in Every Classroom offers a blueprint foreducating this new generation of teachers. The book is filled withsolid recommendations for helping new teachers develop a basicunderstanding of education, teaching, and learning. And, itexplains why and how teachers must learn to connect with differentcultures, develop curriculum that meets students' learning needs,manage common behavior problems, and assess academic progress.

Format: Paperback
An excerpt of this book (pp. 5-28)was assigned to me in my class. I found the writing to be poorly organized, repetitive and wordy. It seems to have been written by a person who likes to hear themselves talk just for the sake of talking. Those 23 pages could have been reduced to 10 and written in a clear manner that would not make the first year of teaching sound like something that makes you want to rip your hair out.

Good is a four-letter word.

In the realm of teaching and learning common "good" marriages include "good teaching," "good students," and "good work." What makes "good" a four-letter word are the unproblematized, common sense implicit notions of the word. Common sense tells us that "good" teachers, students, and work are positive, effective, successful, and productive. By some interpretation(s), "good" may even include a moral element, as in "Ms. Ruiz is a good person" aka buena gente aka good folk.

According to The American Heritage Dictionary (1985) good is defined as "having positive or desirable qualities." The top five entries on [...] define good as:

1. Morally excellent, virtuous; righteous; pious: a good man.
2. Satisfactory in quality, quantity, or degree: a good teacher; good health.
3. Of high quality; excellent.
4. Right; proper; fit: It is good that you are here. His credentials are good.
5. Well-behaved: a good child.

How do Darling-Hammond and Baratz-Snowden define "good" in their text, A Good Teacher in Every Classroom: Preparing the Highly Qualified Teachers Our Children Deserve? They do not. As a matter of fact, within the first three pages of their text they swap "good" for "effective"--in essence exchanging an interrogation of the word for an uncritical operationalization of the enterprise of teaching. Instead of unpacking "good teaching" by asking questions such as, "Who decides what good teaching looks like?" "How is good teaching measured and rewarded? And by whom?" And, "Does good teaching imply `behaving' properly? According to whose rules?
