Teacher Behaviors Related to the Mathematical Achievement of Young Children.
Becher, Rhoda McShane
The purpose of this study was to determine if there were specific teacher behaviors related to the differences in mathematical achievement of four- and five-year-old lower socioeconomic status children across two mathematical curricular intervention treatment conditions. Results indicated that more indirect teacher behavior and the active involvement of the student in the learning process are significantly more effective in facilitating student achievement than is a direct instructional mode. A second interesting finding is that a significant negative correlation was shown to exist between the teacher judgment of the correctness of a response and student achievement. (Author/MN)
