Cook, Linda W.
ProQuest LLC, Ed.D. Dissertation, Lamar University - Beaumont
State and national leaders have focused on the role of the teacher, and the teacher's impact on student achievement. This qualitative study examined narratively the stories of effective teachers of 5th grade students to determine the methods and strategies that they use to foster improved student achievement. Narrative techniques were utilized to discern themes from eight purposively and conveniently selected participants. Four recurring themes were identified that influenced the teachers to be effective with improved student achievement: inquiring, reflection, differentiated instruction, and student success. Findings from this study have implications for further research as well as professional practices. [The dissertation citations contained here are published with the permission of ProQuest LLC.
