Berliner, David C.; Rosenshine, Barak
This paper addresses the issue of how learning in classrooms takes place. The effects of different curriculum and different teaching methods in knowledge acquisition is examined, both as main effects and in interaction with student attitudes. The role of the teacher in communicating the knowledge to be acquired is described. Teachers are viewed as effective in helping students acquire knowledge if they engage in direct instruction. Components of direct instruction are described and data on their relationship to outcomes is presented. (Authors)
