External Opportunity: "Building a Better Teacher" Book Signing & Conversation with Elizabeth Green on October 9

  • Print

September 23, 2014 Join us on Thursday, October 9 from 4:30 pm - 6:30 pm at Everett Middle School in San Francisco for a discussion with Chalkbeat founder and author Elizabeth Green. She outlines how great teachers took control of their own learning and development--and in the process launched a revolution at home and abroad--in her new and widely acclaimed book Building a Better Teacher: How Teaching Works (and How to Teach It to Everyone) and viral excerpt in the New York Times Magazine "Why Do Americans Stink at Math?"

The book draws important lessons from focused, collaborative learning and the use of technology in developing one's teaching craft. Revolutionizing the way we educate our students requires fundamentally changing the ways we recruit, train, support and develop teachers and education leaders. As we all seek to ensure that more children have access to a world-class education, the lessons from Green's book are particularly timely and relevant. It promises to be a provocative conversation and hope that you'll consider joining us.
