Collaborative Urban Education: Characteristics of Successful Urban Teachers.
Baron, Eleanor; And Others
This paper presents the findings of a literature review undertaken to identify behaviors and practices demonstrated by successful urban teachers in their preparation for teaching and interacting with students. The literature search focused on competencies for urban teaching and on urban education. The search yielded two broad areas of competence: internal effects (issues that focus on school or classroom practices), and external effects (practices that urban teachers pursue outside the school to help produce success). The search identified the following internal effects: (1) active teaching; (2) positive classroom management; (3) use of a variety of teaching methods; (4) planning and sequencing; (5) interpersonal skills; (6) efficacy and expectation; and (7) applicability. The external effects identified by the search were community and family support and knowledge of urban and multiethnic sociology. For each effect, the paper provides a short description of the quality, followed by two- to three-sentence descriptions of each empirical study or review related to that effect. Included is a table listing categories of key findings listed by study type and date. Also included are 27 references. (JB)
