Meet the Super Teachers!

Superman may be able to fly, but can he teach fractions? To our minds, that’s a true superpower. And thousands of incredible teachers do it brilliantly every day. The latest issue of Scholastic Instructor magazine is dedicated to them—the “Superteachers.”

We’ve asked a few of our favorite teachers to share their tips to help our readers boost their teaching superpowers. Here is a sneak peek:

  1. The Book Whisperer: Donalyn Miller on developing habits that will inspire every child’s love of reading.
  2. The Text Detective: Timothy Shanahan takes the mystery out of using close reading.
  3. The Craft Crusaders: Teacher bloggers share the “craftivities” that make learning stick.
  4. The Straight Talker: Rafe Esquith on teaching in the Age of Entitlement

Teachers may not don spandex and a cape when they head to work each morning, but their tireless dedication in the classroom is truly heroic. So, we’d like to take a moment to say, “Thank you, Superteachers! You’re ensuring a brighter future for us all.”
