In this follow-up to Effective Teacher Induction and Mentoring, Michael Strong tackles the major issues surrounding teacher quality and effectiveness. The Highly Qualified Teacher provides an accessible overview of the research related to teacher quality, and introduces a new method for evaluating teachers based on extensive fieldwork in schools. This timely work clarifies the different definitions of teacher quality and distinguishes between good teaching and successful teaching. Strong thoroughly examines the empirical evidence responsible for identifying the qualities associated with positive student outcomes, including observational measures that are able to predict a teacher’s ability to raise student achievement in mathematics.

This comprehensive, up-to-date volume is essential reading for students of education, as well as school administrators, educational policy specialists, and anyone wrestling with the federal mandate to provide a highly qualified teacher in every classroom.

I purchased this book because it was a required text for a college course. Some information was repetitive of what I already knew but there was also a bit of information that was useful.
It met my needs for a research paper and supported other readings. It is difficult to measure teacher quality but I am highly concerned about teacher ethical responsibility which is on the decline
