Teaching Effectiveness and the Language Arts.
Robinson, H. Alan
This paper explores criteria for judging teaching effectiveness in the language arts. The author argues that a number of studies have been concerned with viewing pupil-teacher interaction during instruction, but few have focused on this interaction during the teaching and learning of specific language arts lessons. There is a need for establishing relationships between interaction and pupil success. The author praises a recent study by Frizzi, utilizing and interrelating Mitzel's three classifications for criteria of teaching effectiveness (product--measure of student growth; process--social interaction of pupils and teachers; presage--such predictors as teacher traits and successes on paper and pencil tests, etc.). It is concluded that observation of specific teacher-student interactions during specific types of language arts lessons with some measure of achievement administered may be more useful for viewing teacher effectiveness in the language arts than vague evaluations undertaken in the past.
