A Review of Recent Literature on the Effects of Class Size, with Implications for English and Language Arts Instruction.
Albritton, Thomas
In reviewing recent literature on the effects of class size on instruction and the implications for English and language arts instruction, this compilation gives teachers and educators a thorough list of references. The first 10 pages of the review are devoted to a description of various earlier literature and research reviews on class size and its relation to teacher attitudes, teaching methods, academic achievement, and teacher behavior, among other concerns. The second section reports on studies of class size effect on achievement, and examines several significant debates in defining class size and determining achievement levels. The third section covers studies on class size and its effect on quality, including better teacher-student relationships, individualized instruction, and fewer discipline problems, while the final section details some particularly comprehensive studies, most of which were remarkable because of combinations of thoroughness, control, and content.
