Key Elements of Effective Teaching in the Direct Teaching Model.
Bruning, Roger H.
Summaries and outlines are presented of key elements in effective teaching identified in research studies by Kounin (1970), Brophy (1973), Brophy and Evertson (1976), Stallings (1974; l975), Berliner (1979), and Good and Grouws (1979). These elements are synthesized in a direct teaching model that delineates the characteristics of effective teachers: (1) personal responsibility for their classrooms; (2) realistic attitudes toward students; (3) classrooms that are smoothly and almost automatically run; (4) "withitness" (ability to deter disruptive behavior); (5) appropriate seatwork assignments; (6) homework assignments; (7) clearly defined classroom rules; (8) instruction paced according to student background and ability; and (9) praise for students during teacher-initiated contacts.
