The Ideology and Best Practice of Effective Teachers of Diverse Children and Youth in Poverty
Dr. Martin Haberman’s book, Star Teachers: The Ideology and Best Practices of Effective Teachers Serving Diverse Student in Poverty represents four decades of his research. You probably remember those few teachers who had the ability to inspire confidence in you and made a difference in your life- “star” teachers. This book focuses on the ideology and practice of star teachers who function effectively, even in the midst of failing schools and school districts.
The book speaks to our vision of a future in which all children and youth of America will have a competent teacher and the effective school leaders they deserve. We believe that can be accomplished by having school leaders and educators embrace the research of Dr. Haberman.
