The behaviors of effective teachers compared to the behaviors indicated on the observation instrument of the Beginning Teacher Program were investigated. Effective teaching behaviors were drawn from professional literature. The results indicate that effective teaching includes competence, performance, and continuing teacher education. The teacher's role as a professional rather than a technician was supported in the literature. The results indicate that effective teachers universally practice the effective behaviors listed in the Beginning Teacher Program which are based on scientific knowledge. The recommendation is that more research should be done in teacher effectiveness and evaluation.
