Are You Good Enough to Teach Our Grandchildren?
Shaw, Patricia A.
Kappa Delta Pi Record, v49 n4 p148-152 2013
This article examines standards which would define a teacher who is good enough to teach children. A good teacher should understand the development of learners. To ensure inclusive learning environments, the teacher should use understanding of individual differences and diverse cultures. The teacher should also collaborate with others to develop individual and collaborative learning environments. The author's views are based not only on her hopes as a longtime educator and grandmother, but also on 10 Interstate New Teachers Assessment and Support Consortium (INTASC) standards, which she details in this article.
