When is comes to good teaching, often, we pay too much attention to the strategies with out fully understanding why those strategies work in the first place. Make a powerful shift in your teaching practice – instead of acquiring more or better strategies focus on developing a mindset toward teaching by rigorously applying the principles of effective instruction below into your practice.
Principle One: Start where your students are
Principle Two: Know where your students are going
Principle Three: Expect to get your students to their goal
Principle Four: Support Your students along the way
Principle Five: Use feedback to help you and your students get better
Principle Six: Focus on quality rather that quantity
Principle Seven: Never work harder than your students

In Never Work Harder Than Your Students & Other Principles of Great Teaching, (published by ASCD) Robyn R. Jackson makes a radical assertion: Any teacher can become a master teacher with the right kind of practice. This mindset is achieved by rigorously applying seven principles of the master teacher mindset to your teaching until they become your automatic response to students. The more you practice these principles, the more you begin to think like a master teacher.
