About the publication

This study addresses the crucial issues of how teachers teach and how the schools in which they work can be made increasingly effective. Although there are different ways of improving the quality of education that students receive, it will always be highly dependent on the quality of instruction that teachers provide. In other words, whatever is done in terms of distributing new material or developing new curricula, educational effectiveness depends first and foremost on teachers and the way they teach and handle their class. The present edition is an update of an earlier booklet by the same author. It summarizes a wealth of research results available on the subject in developed, but also in developing, countries. It provides instruments for researchers and all those who would like to study what really happens in the classrooms in which students receive their instruction.
