Abstract

Report examining teachers' practices in four areas 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. This report also presents estimates of the proportion of teachers who used a wide range of teaching practices, including both those frequently recommended in curriculum and teaching standards and those that have traditionally been part of teachers' practice. Also in the report are analyses of data collected in the 1994-95 Teacher Follow-up Survey (TFS:94-95)
