The Teacher and the Classroom
Duke, Nell K.; Cervetti, Gina N.; Wise, Crystal N.
Journal of Education, v196 n3 p35-43 2016
"In Becoming a Nation of Readers" ("BNR") (1985), Richard C. Anderson, Elfrieda H. Hiebert, Judith A. Scott, and Ian A. G. Wilkinson argued that the quality of teaching is a powerful influence on children's reading development--more powerful than the influence of the general teaching approach or materials used. In this article, we focus on one research tradition in the area of literacy teaching quality: case studies of teachers who are identified as effective or exemplary as literacy educators. Review of these studies reveals a wide range of well-coordinated practices used by effective literacy educators, echoing, expanding, and deepening points made in "BNR."
