“Describe What It Means To Be A Great Teacher In Six Words”

| 10 Comments

I guess it’s a “storifying” weekend for me….

Michelle Rhee’s organization, StudentsFirst, is sponsoring a contest to “describe what it means to be a great teacher in six words.” Educators on Twitter who have a decidedly different vision of teaching created the hashtag of #6wordessay to share their own perspective. I’ve used Storify to show a sample of what people are coming up with. If you’re on Twitter, contribute your own there. If you don’t tweet, feel free to leave a comment on this blog post.
