There is some increasingly interesting research coming out of the States which is seeking to investigate the ‘black box’ of successful schools – what do effective teachers do?
Harvard’s Tom Kane backed by Gates Foundation funding is conducting one of the most remarkable projects yet. Launched in the fall of 2009, the Measures of Effective Teaching Project is the largest effort of its kind to collect video, student perceptions, and assessments of student achievement and teacher knowledge. The project’s goal is to learn what effective teaching looks like.The website for Measures of Effective Teaching is worth having a look at.
