Teacher Effectiveness and Reading Instruction.
Robinson, Richard D.
Recognizing that classrooms are complex settings in which effective teaching cannot be the end result of merely following a list of rules and regulations, this monograph provides practicing reading teachers with appropriate information based on current teacher-effectiveness research so that they can be informed by the best of current thinking to make the most intelligent and useful decisions about their classroom reading programs. Chapters in the monograph are: (1) "The Effective Reading Teacher"; (2) "Effective Classroom Management for Reading"; (3) "Teachers' Expectations"; (4) "Establishing an Effective Environment for Reading"; (5) "Effective Reading Development: The Role of the Home"; (6) "Effective Reading Instruction and the Special Learner"; and (7) "Effective Reading Teachers: They DO Make a Difference." Each chapter concludes with a section entitled "You Become Involved" in which statements or questions are posed to help teachers apply the information to their own situation. Seventeen notes are included; a 97-item annotated bibliography of recent research in the ERIC database on teacher effectiveness is attached. (RS)
