Teach With Your Strengths
Find out what sets great teachers apart, and discover your own talents as a teacher with Teach With Your Strengths.
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 find out what makes a teacher 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.
Motivate and Engage Your Students
In Teach With Your Strengths, you'll hear from great teachers, many of whom reveal their unorthodox -- and sure to be controversial -- approaches.
And, you’ll learn more about yourself -- why you are who you are as a person and as a teacher -- when you take the CliftonStrengths assessment. Teach With Your Strengths includes an access code to complete the online assessment.
With insights from 40 years of research into great teaching, this groundbreaking book will not only help you discover your innate talents as a teacher, it will show you how to liberate those talents to inspire the next generation of students.
