Among the presentations at the annual convention of the International Reading Association, held in Atlanta in May, was a session titled "Teachers, Students, and Literacy Instruction: Profiles in Learning." The two session leaders, Robert B. Ruddell, from the University of California at Berkeley, and Martha Rapp-Haggard Ruddell, from Sonoma State University in Rohnert Park, California, discussed their research, which has focused on two aspects of instruction: the characteristics of influential teachers, and the manner in which skillful and less skilled teachers employ ambiguity in their teaching.
