From the Paper:

"There has been much research done in the area of what skills are required in order to teach children to read. In 1991, author Hoffman summarized this major body of research, which covered the 1960s through the 1980s, regarding teachers who were particularly effective in assisting students in their quest to learn to read.
"Hoffman reported that several teacher behaviors consistently correlated to student achievement in learning to read. These teacher behaviors were: clarity, variability, enthusiasm, task orientation, teacher directness, student opportunity to learn criterion material, use of structuring comments, multiple levels of questions, and positive criticism. These are the skills that teachers must possess in order to successfully teach children to read.
"Furthermore, James Brophy wrote in 1973 about a study of the achievement of students of 165 second- and third-grade teachers which was conducted over a three-year period. Brophy described the qualities of the most effective teachers in this study. His findings were not unusual or surprising."
