Effective teaching in elementary mathematics : Identifying classroom practices that support student achievement

  title={Effective teaching in elementary mathematics : Identifying classroom practices that support student achievement},
  author={David L. Blazar},
Recent investigations into the education production function have moved beyond traditional teacher inputs, such as education, certification, and salary, focusing instead on observational measures of teaching practice. However, challenges to identification mean that this work has yet to coalesce around specific instructional dimensions that increase student achievement. I build on this discussion by exploiting within-school, between-grade, and cross-cohort variation in scores from two… CONTINUE READING
