Teacher Characteristics that Predict Successful Reading Instruction.
Clary, Linda Mixon
Four variables--teacher personality, knowledge of reading, years of experience, and number of years since last reading course--and their relationships with pupil achievement in reading were examined in a study involving 23 fourth grade teachers. The teachers were evaluated on several instruments and their pupils were pretested and posttested with a standardized reading achievement test. Each teacher's scores on the variables in question were correlated with the mean class gain for the students. Results showed a significant relationship between student success and teacher personality and knowledge. The best combination of predictors was personality with knowledge. (Author/FL)
