    Title on book jacket cover: Building A+ better teacher : how teaching works (and how to teach it to everyone)
    Everyone agrees that a great teacher can have an enormous impact. Yet we still don't know what, precisely, makes a teacher great. Building a Better Teacher introduces a new generation of educators exploring the intricate science underlying their art. Through the stories of those educators, and the hilarious and heartbreaking theater that unfolds in the classroom every day, Elizabeth Green takes us on a journey into the heart of a profession that impacts every child in America. Building a Better Teacher demonstrates the unexpected complexity of teaching. Green focuses on the questions that really matter: How do we prepare teachers and what should they know before they enter the classroom? How does one get young minds to reason, conjecture, prove, and understand? What are the keys to good discipline? Green provides a new way for parents to judge what their children need in the classroom and considers how to scale good ideas. She discovers that good teaching is a skill. A skill that can be taught.--Excerpted from publisher's web site.
