Veteran educator Elizabeth Green says great teachers aren’t born, they’re made—and she’s about to teach you how. In her acclaimed book Building a Better Teacher: How Teaching Works, Ms. Green explores the question of how we can foster better teaching habits by using real examples from her research and travels to schools around the world. And in her equally-acclaimed talks, Ms. Green shares her findings, as well as hilarious and heartbreaking real stories, to convey the truly diverse skills one needs to be an effective teacher. When it comes to teaching, the common narrative is that it takes special, born-that-way individuals to step up to the plate: instead, she argues that good teaching is not innate, but can be learned, practiced, and championed.
