What Do We Know about Effective Fourth-Grade Teachers and Their Classrooms? CELA Research Report.
Allington, Richard L.; Johnston, Peter H.
This research report summarizes the features associated with exemplary teaching at the upper elementary level drawn from available research. The report then compares the results from the author/researchers' own study of the nature of classroom talk, curriculum materials, organization of instruction, and evaluation in 30 fourth-grade classrooms in 24 schools in 5 states. Findings show substantial convergence between the previous studies and their own; in addition, their analyses show that exemplary teachers produce the kinds of student literacy achievement that is beyond even the most sophisticated standardized tests.
