Effective Teachers = Student Achievement: What the Research Says
Stronge, James H.
Eye on Education
Research has shown that there is no greater influence on a student's success than the quality of his or her teacher. This book presents the research findings which demonstrate the connection between teacher effectiveness and student achievement. We've always known, at least intuitively, that teachers matter, but this book proves that teachers are the most powerful factors ensuring student success. Author James Stronge describes and explains the value-added teacher-assessment research that has emerged in the past decade and demystifies the power and practices of effective teachers. Contents of this book include: Part 1: Effective Teachers = Student Achievement: (1) Do Teachers Matter? The Impact of Teachers on Student Achievement; (2) How Much Do Teachers Matter?; (3) Why Do Teachers Matter?; (4) How Do Teachers Matter?; (5) How Does Teacher Effectiveness Impact School Reform?; (6) Why Teachers Do Matter Most; and Part 2: Resources You Can Use: Value-Added Methods. This book also contains: About the Author; Introduction; Selected Annotated Bibliography; and References.
