The Case for Adaptability as an Aspect of Reading Teacher Effectiveness
Parsons, Seth; Williams, Baxter; Burrowbridge, Sarah; Mauk, Gary
Voices from the Middle, v19 n1 p19-23 Sep 2011
The authors present adaptability as an important component of reading teacher effectiveness. They demonstrate recent conceptions of teacher effectiveness that value the complexity and unpredictability of classroom instruction. Using an example from a middle grades classroom, they illustrate how effective teachers adapt their instruction to enhance student learning, and they describe two recent studies that suggest teacher adaptations have a positive effect on middle grades students' comprehension and engagement.
