Teacher Effectiveness in Elementary Language Arts: A Progress Report.
Robinson, H. Alan; Burrows, Alvina Treut
This survey of recent research on teacher behaviors probes seven areas of elementary language arts teaching: teaching linguistics to elementary and preschool children; teaching listening skills to children in the elementary school; teaching literature to children; children's oral language/speaking; reading instruction; spelling instruction; and the teaching of writing. Answers were sought to these questions: (1) What teaching behaviors are associated with pupil "success" as defined in the respective studies? and (2) How can one identify and describe these activities in the classroom milieu? It was concluded that gaps exist in the crucial area of "precise activities at points of interaction between teacher and pupil." In addition to sections reporting on each of the seven areas probed, the book includes "Plan for a Five-Phase Study of Teaching Effectiveness,""Criteria of Excellence in Teaching the Language Arts,""Evaluative Instruments and Pertinent Research," and "A Forward Look."
