A Conceptual Research Model for Identifying Effective Teachers of Reading.
Rupley, William H.
This paper argues that the first step in research aimed at identifying what constitutes the effective reading teacher should be the establishment of criteria which deals with effectiveness. A conceptual model is presented which could be used to identify the effective teacher. The focal point of the model is that effective reading instruction should be based on measures of students' outcome and then look for process variables which could explain the product. This approach is based on the assumption that students' end of school year reading achievement is directly affected by the reading instruction which they received during that school year. The model is then discussed in terms of three alternative assessment instruments, determining the appropriate unit of analysis, and making decisions about how to best examine these data. (TS)
