Fuchs, Douglas; Fuchs, Lynn S. – Theory Into Practice, 2016
Classroom research on adaptive teaching indicates few teachers modify instruction for at-risk students in a manner that benefits them.

Pandya, Jessica Zacher – Theory Into Practice, 2012

Mader, Cynthia E. – Theory Into Practice, 2009
Person-centered instruction recognizes the importance of internal motivation in learning. It is difficult, however, for many teachers to hold on to their early visions of interacting in classrooms filled with internally motivated students.

Wilkinson, Louise Cherry – Theory into Practice, 1985
Something significant can be learned by "listening-in" on children's conversations. Research has shown individual differences among students that may affect children's achievement. Teachers need to "listen-in" on children's conversations and "listen-for" what children are saying about how well they understand directions and activities. (CB)

Harste, Jerome C. – Theory into Practice, 1989
This article examines classroom organizational patterns and the focus, content, and strategies of instruction to show that the basal reader, rather than reading comprehension, is what is being taught. A skills model of reading, the basal approach, does not reflect what readers do to make sense of text. (IAH)

Bargar, Robert – Theory Into Practice, 1974
Because activity in the classroom is the primary focus of educational research, and because teachers are critical about the dissemination and implementation of research products, developers must take into account the growth and development of instructional personnel. Educational development is a multidimensional, transactional phenomenon and must…
