From Good to Great: A Study of Teacher Perspectives on Factors Influencing Effectiveness

This research brief and accompanying discussion starter tool are based on the insights of 300 National and State Teachers of the Year collected through a first-of-its-kind exploratory survey. The report includes teachers’ reflections on the professional experiences and supports that have made them highly successful teachers, and provides education leaders and policymakers with needed information about the professional experiences that help teachers move from good to great. The accompanying discussion starter tool can be used by teacher leaders, school leaders, and policy leaders to begin a dialogue about what supports all teachers need to grow across their career continuum.
