Author: Carol Frederick Steele. We all remember our inspired teachers--the ones who made learning come alive and helped us break through to better and deeper understanding. In The Inspired Teacher: How to Know One, Grow One, or Be One, National Board Certified Teacher Carol Frederick Steele offers insightful advice for teachers of all levels to help build the skills essential to effective and motivating instruction. The Inspired Teacher focuses on 13 research-based skills of expertise, including

* Solving instructional problems
* Interpreting events in progress
* Being sensitive to context
* Showing passion for teaching and learning

Each chapter charts a growth continuum for a single skill, explaining how a teacher can progress from initial ignorance (unaware) to comprehension (aware) to competent application (capable) to great expertise (inspired).
