Gee, Elsie W.; And Others
This report contains the synthesis of Research on Instructional Effectiveness in Elementary Schools (RUETE). The emphasis of the research fellows was on large scale, classroom-based studies related to student achievement. Current research in the areas of active teaching behaviors, activity and task stuctures, and academic learning time is discussed. A detailed description is provided of the design of the two phases of the RUETE study. Following a brief overview of research on teaching behaviors, key elements of research on activity structure in the classroom are described. These include: (1) content of instruction; (2) group size and composition; (3) division of labor; (4) student control; (5) student evaluation; and (6) student advancement.
