Educational Leadership


A portion of a recent radio and television commercial produced for the Nebraska State Education Association states that, "Teaching is to touch a life forever." Practically everyone who has been involved in the educational process as a student can reflect upon particular teachers who have made some impression upon them. Whether that impression can be positive or negative, the fact remains that the student's life was indeed touched forever by the teacher. Since the teacher plays such a vital role in the educational life of a student it would be interesting to see what research reports about teaching skills as they relate to student performance.
