In the exhibit above, the prevailing instructional strategies observed by auditors are delineated and presented by level. In the elementary schools, the most common activity is the passive type of engagement including seatwork, copying, worksheet completion, textbook activities, and silent reading. Nearly one-third of the classrooms observed were involved in seatwork activities. The next most prevalent type of classroom activity in the elementary schools was that of direct instruction, in which the classroom teacher was leading discussion or lecturing.

Problem-solving activities and applied practice activities in elementary schools comprised only six percent and 20.2 percent respectively and 26.2 percent together, reflecting little congruence with district expectations for this type of activity.

The distribution of classroom activities is illustrated in the chart below that depicts the percentage of time for each category of activity. Code designations are found in Exhibit 2.4.1.
