Defining Teacher Quality

Welcome to Highered Intelligence!: "
The biggest problem, of course, is precisely what Cochran-Smith eventually pointed out: the above relies on independent empirical analysis to determine what makes good teaching. You can point to the good teachers, but the theory of IF A THEN G doesn't tell you anything specific about what you need to do to be a good teacher. It's not focused on the substance of good teaching."

Great post on teacher quality. I especially struggle with how to evaluate pre-service teachers during student teaching when they are just one of the many variables in the classroom in addition to the more important challenge of their just really beginning to leran to teach.
