The folks at Gallup Press are at it again, with a great professional development opportunity. Looking for a way to have more fun teaching, while being a better educator at the same time? Pick up a copy of “Teach With your Strengths” and you are on the right track.
According to Gallup research, “all great teachers make the most of their natural talents.” Research also indicates that “great teachers don’t strive to be well-rounded. They know that ‘fixing their weaknesses’ doesn’t work - it only produces mediocrity.” Refreshing to hear! I’d like to focus on the things I do well and enjoy doing! With this research serving as the foundation, Teach with Your Strengths offers practical ways to use your individual strengths to truly be a great teacher.
My favorite part of this text is that, with your purchase, you get access to an online assessment that reveals your Signature Themes of talent. You’ll go online, answer a series of questions, and receive a print out identifying your talents. I’ve done it, and it was right on! You’ll use these themes of talent with your text to modify your classroom and learning environment to maximize your teaching ability and have more fun!
