The Effective Reading Teacher: What Are the Missing Pieces?
Rupley, William H.; Blair, Timothy R.
The evaluation of a reading teacher's effectiveness can best be achieved through the analysis of the process whereby the teacher develops interest and skills in the student. In determining the development of skills, the danger for researchers lies in assuming that achievement at the appropriate grade level is commensurate with achievement to the best of the individual student's abilities. The identification of reading successes is further complicated by the unknown relationship between the particular reading approach used and outcomes noted. A definition of the effective reading teacher as one whose students achieve at a level significantly greater than that expected at initial diagnosis is more likely to address the question of the process of student learning. The determination of differential levels of achievement and their relationship to specific teaching techniques can then serve as a basis for teacher training. (KS)
