Summary

WHAT DO GREAT TEACHERS DO DIFFERENTLY?

As an educator, you may ask yourself this question all the time. Or you may know the answer but are struggling in an environment that just doesn’t appreciate great teaching.

Whatever the case, educators — and American society in general — have long worried about the lack of great teaching. That is why for decades, Gallup has directed the leading thinkers in education and psychology to uncover what makes a teacher truly great.

Mountains of research point to this remarkable fact: While their styles and approaches may differ, all great teachers make the most of their natural talents. Here’s something else: Great teachers don’t strive to be well-rounded. They know that “fixing their weaknesses” doesn’t work — it only produces mediocrity. Worse, it diverts time and attention from what they naturally do well.

In Teach With Your Strengths, you’ll hear from great teachers, many of whom reveal their unorthodox — and sure to be controversial — approaches. You’ll gain key insights gleaned from 40 years of research into great teaching. And, you’ll take an online assessment that reveals your Signature Themes of talent.

As you read this groundbreaking book, you’ll discover your own innate talents as a teacher. And you’ll learn how to liberate those talents to inspire the next generation of students.

Editorial Reviews

Editorial Reviews

“Defying the orthodoxy that teachers, to be more well rounded, should work to strengthen their weaknesses, this book, drawing on research by the Gallup Organization, maintains that great teachers are those who teach with their greatest talents and abilities.” Booklist
