Effective Schools: What Research Tells Us.
Cohen, Michael
State Education Leader, v1 n3 p6-7 Sum 1982
The following effective teaching practices identified by recent educational research are discussed: (1) carefully structured, sequenced, and paced instruction; (2) good classroom management; and (3) careful plans and decisions about goals, content, materials, and activities of instruction by teachers. Well-articulated instructional practices and curriculum in every classroom in the school, an overlap between content of instruction and content of tests used to assess student performance, and active instructional leadership by the building principal are discussed as factors in good instructional management. According to research evidence presented, effectiveness in schools also depends upon shared values, norms, and relationships among staff and students. Strong support from the superintendent, district office, and parents is also discussed as an additional factor for effective schools. The need for careful judgment of the findings is pointed out, and consideration of the limitations as well as the strengths in the research is advised. Four limitations are listed. (EM)
