Effective Schooling Practices: A Research Synthesis.
Northwest Regional Educational Lab., Portland, OR. Goal Based Education Program.
Characteristics and practices identified by research associated with improvement in student performance are synthesized. Findings are organized in three sections: the classroom; the school building; and the district. The research base upon which this synthesis is drawn focused upon: (1) school effects research: the whole school studied to identify schoolwide practices that help students learn; (2) teacher effects research: studies of teachers in the classroom to discover effective practices; (3) research on instructional leadership: studies focused on what principals do to support teaching and learning; (4) curriculum alignment research: studies of effective methods of organizing and managing curriculum; (5) program coupling research: examination of the interrelationships among practices used at the district, school building and classroom levels; and (6) research on educational change: studies to identify conditions and practices that promote significant, durable change in educational programs. Citations from research supporting the synthesized findings are provided. An extensive bibliography of effective schooling research is included. (JD)
