First published in 1999, this volume attempts to draw the literature on school effectiveness and teacher effectiveness together in one volume. Its central tenet is that classroom effectiveness is central to school effectiveness and that there is much to be gained from integrating the literature on effective schooling and effective teaching. Issues discussed include departments, classroom communication and teacher expectation, motivation and feedback.
