In this article, Alan November, a long time teacher and education consultant, offers advice for principals on ways to hire teachers who support student agency and understand the role they should play to guide, rather than direct, learning. November proposes seven questions he thinks should be standard in the interviewing and hiring process. Two of which include:
- How do you manage your own professional growth?
- How do you teach students to learn what you don’t know?
Administrators will find these questions useful in many contexts, as they speak to core intrinsic motivations around teaching, growth and development, and creation of a thriving culture of learning for students and teachers.
