Abstract

The purpose of this study was to determine the extent to which teachers were aware of and using effective practices in their classrooms. Reasons why they did not use a particular practice were also obtained. Fifty-five teachers were sent questionnaires and thirty-one teachers returned the questionnaires. From this data, the percentage of usage of each practice was determined as well as the percentage of implementation of each practice in five different subject areas. The results of this study showed that teachers are aware of and are using the best empirically validated practices.
