Better Teachers, Better
Schools: What Star Teachers
Know, Believe And Do

Editors: Valerie Hill-Jackson and Delia Stafford

Pages: 207

Defined as the outstanding minority, “Star” teachers are able to transform learning for diverse, at-risk students, and thrive even in malfunctioning schools. What distinguishes “star” teachers from “quitters and failures”?

Tapping on five decades of educational and teacher training research, renowned educator, Martin Haberman identified seven broad “functions” that go beyond discrete behaviour and personality traits. Filled with research findings and illuminating case studies, the book illustrates the “functions” at work and how teacher selection trumps teacher training when it comes to teacher retention and effectiveness.
