A New York Times Book Review Notable Book

"A must-read book for every American teacher and taxpayer." ―Amanda Ripley, author of The Smartest Kids in the World

Launched with a hugely popular New York Times Magazine cover story, Building a Better Teacher sparked a national conversation about teacher quality and established Elizabeth Green as a leading voice in education. Green's fascinating and accessible narrative dispels the common myth of the "natural-born teacher" and introduces maverick educators exploring the science behind their art. Her dramatic account reveals that great teaching is not magic, but a skill―a skill that can be taught. Now with a new afterword that offers a guide on how to identify―and support―great teachers, this provocative and hopeful book "should be part of every new teacher’s education" (Washington Post).
