School Effectiveness and the Management of Effective Learning and Teaching.
This paper draws on school-effectiveness research to address issues concerned with effective learning and effective teaching, and the role of the school in promoting these processes. The following questions are addressed: What do we know about effective learning and teaching? How does the effective schools research contributed to this debate? What are the relevant mechanisms? and What are the lessons for school improvers? Mechanisms associated with effectiveness include strong, positive leadership; high expectations; monitoring of student progress; an active student role; rewards and incentives; parental involvement; joint planning; and a focus on learning. Lessons learned from school-effectiveness work point to the need for planning; focusing on ends, rather than means; and working toward worthwhile ends. The above factors are means toward the end of effective learning, which may change as schools of the future change. (Contains 84 references.) (LMI)
