Editorial Reviews


"Teaching as Leadership demonstrates a commitment to and professional endorsement of the power of teachers. Farr's book speaks to the moral, ethical, and economic imperative to effect improved achievement for all students, not just some. This is a must-read for anyone at any level of our education system, including those who are preparing to revise and reauthorize NCLB." (Huffington Post, March 1, 2010)

From the Back Cover

Praise for Teaching as Leadership

"Eliminating our nation's unjust achievement gap and providingschools where all children can learn is part of the unfinishedbusiness of the Civil Rights Movement and of our nation. Teach ForAmerica is dedicated to this goal—and this new book is aterrific resource that shares the valuable lessons learned fromstudying highly effective teachers and successful classrooms acrossthe country."
Marian Wright Edelman, president, Children's DefenseFund

"Every teacher, principal, and superintendent should read thisbook. Over the last two years, we have seen our students' reading,writing, and math skills improve significantly. The principlesoutlined in Teaching As Leadership have played a criticalrole in our progress."
Andrés Alonso, chief executive officer,Baltimore City Schools

"By assessing the actions of highly effective teachers in someof America's most challenging teaching environments, Teach ForAmerica outlines key strategies to close the achievementgap—investing in students and their families, planningpurposefully, and working relentlessly. This inspiring book willinform the work of everyone engaged in the training and support ofteachers in high-poverty schools."
Kathleen McCartney, dean of Harvard Graduate Schoolof Education and Gerald S. Lesser Professor in Early ChildhoodDevelopment

"For new teachers, there is no substitute for getting into aclassroom and suffering the pain and frustration of finding whatworks best for them. This book, however, offers new teachers aresource sure to make those first months a little less difficult.Teaching As Leadership assembles wisdom from dozens ofsuccessful Teach For America teachers, addressing every problem onecould imagine. This is a smart gift for the new teacher in yourfamily."
Jay Mathews, Washington Post education columnist andauthor, Work Hard. Be Nice: How Two Inspired Teachers Createdthe Most Promising Schools in America

"From its very beginnings, Teach For America has invested moreenergy in understanding effective teaching than any teacherpreparation program I know. And year after year, they have fed thatinformation back into their own selection processes and teachersupports with a single goal: producing more teachers who can changethe life chances of poor children. With this book, they havedistilled what they are learning—along with relevantresearch—into a guide that is at once both fabulouslyreadable and highly practical. If I had three thumbs, they wouldall be pointed up."
Kati Haycock, president, Education Trust

"Teaching As Leadership works. This is the approach takenby teachers who lead diverse students to great academicachievements."
Beverly Hall, superintendent of Atlanta PublicSchools and 2009 National Superintendent of the Year
