School Effects as an Example of the Breadth of Jere Brophy's Scholarly Impact
Stringfield, Sam
Journal of Classroom Interaction, v50 n2 p93-101 2015
Several methods exist for assessing a person's scholarly and practical contributions. In the case of Jere Brophy, quantitative methods can begin to tell his remarkable story. Brophy authored or co-authored over 300 articles, monographs and books. His research has been cited over 36,000 times. Over 60 of his publications have been cited at least 100 times, and 200 have been cited at least 10 times each (Google Scholar, March, 2015). This places Brophy's scholarly contributions easily in the top one percent of our field. Taking nothing away from Brophy's impact in the areas of student motivation (Brophy, 1999, 2010) and research on social studies (e.g., Brophy, Alleman, & Halvorsen, 2012), Brophy's largest scholarly influences were in the area of teacher behavior and related effects (e.g., Brophy 1973, 1979; Brophy & Good, 1986). Each of these is an example of an area in which Brophy directly engaged in research; however, his influence went substantially beyond the direct impact. In this article, the author highlights Brophy's contributions to one area in which he had impact far beyond his own scholarly contributions. While this article focuses on the area of school effects and improvement, its purpose is to provide one detailed example of the wider range of Brophy's impact.
