@GOOD Asks: How Do We Identify "Good Teaching"? Answers

Yesterday on GOOD, Twitter, and Facebook, we asked our friends: How should we identify "good teaching"? We ask a question to our Twitter and Facebook faithful once a day, so if you’re not yet following @GOOD or a fan, make sure to sign up and participate in the conversation.

"Good Teaching" should make the learning curve into a straight line.
What about teacher peer groups throughout the year? Best practices and collaboration naturally spread.
By the progress the students are learning.
Perhaps by the way their students visibly impact the world for good! A great teacher shows the way forward but doesn't helicopter.
Let's also identify "good parenting" and "good students."

Check out what our Twitter followers had in mind and what our Facebook buddies had to say.

By good results. I mean successful lives/careers of past students.
Students graduate ready for further education or training, employment, and independent living.
Anthony: Teaching good Christian values. The values our society has been built upon for more than 2000 years. Respect and love for each other.
@Anthony Our society is not based on Christian values. Never has been, and hopefully never will be.
A successful teacher provides the best possible place for learning and exploration to happen, and then shows the students what learning and exploration look like.
In other words... visit their "classroom" and see if you learn anything.
