Virtues of the good teacher : messaged from literature, policy and practice

Cooke, Sandra (2013) Virtues of the good teacher : messaged from literature, policy and practice. Working Paper. University of Birmingham.



Students completing their Initial Teacher Education talked about inspirational teachers: They had an enthusiasm for education and a love of learning which translated across to the children, they worked well as a team and created a positive working environment...they used creativity to create a varied and interesting curriculum. They are engaging, give fun yet challenging lessons for their pupils but also they demonstrate character in how they interact outside the lessons, in corridors, on the playground, always being fair, thoughtful and interested in the students they work with. Every child in the class feels valued. The classroom feels a happy and vibrant place to be.
