What Happens in Classrooms? Instructional Practices in Elementary and Secondary Schools


This in-depth report, recently released by NCES, discusses K-12 teachers' teaching practices and presents data about the proportion of teachers who use particular practices. The report covers four aspects of instruction: "the roles that teachers and students play in learning activities, the materials and technology used in the classroom, the kind of learning tasks that students do both in the classroom and at home, and how teachers assess and evaluate student learning." In addition, the report also looks at whether teachers' strategies vary according to specific characteristics of their students.
