TEACHER AIDE SERVICE AS A MEANS OF ENRICHING A SOPHOMORE COURSE IN EDUCATIONAL PSYCHOLOGY.
HOCHMAN, IRVIN; LANG, GERHARD
TO DETERMINE THE EXTENT TO WHICH CLASSROOM TEACHING EXPERIENCE CAN MAKE EDUCATIONAL PSYCHOLOGY A MORE USEFUL COURSE, A TEACHER AIDE PROGRAM WAS ESTABLISHED TO PROVIDE LABORATORY EXPERIENCE FOR STUDENTS ENROLLED IN EDUCATIONAL PSYCHOLOGY COURSES. IT WAS HOPED THIS STUDY WOULD GIVE INDICATION OF THE VALUE OF OTHER KINDS OF LABORATORY EXPERIENCES TO BE OFFERED IN CONJUNCTION WITH OTHER EDUCATIONAL COURSES. SAMPLE STUDENTS OF A SOPHOMORE EDUCATIONAL PSYCHOLOGY COURSE WERE GROUPED INTO ONE EXPERIMENTAL AND TWO CONTROL CLASSES. THE EXPERIMENTAL CLASS COMBINED CLASSROOM STUDY WITH A TEACHER AIDE PROGRAM (TAP) IN WHICH THEY TAUGHT FOR 2 HOURS A WEEK IN LOCAL SCHOOLS. AT THE END OF THE PROGRAM, TEST RESULTS SHOWED NO SIGNIFICANT DIFFERENCE IN THE THEORETICAL KNOWLEDGE ACQUIRED BY THE THREE GROUPS, NOR DID THE KNOWLEDGE ACQUIRED NECESSARILY CONFIRM THEIR DECISION TO BECOME TEACHERS. TAP WAS, HOWEVER, FAVORABLY RECEIVED BY THE PARTICIPATING STUDENTS AND TEACHERS. IT WAS SUGGESTED THAT NONEDUCATION MAJORS BE ASKED TO PARTICIPATE TO SEE IF INTEREST IN A TEACHING CAREER COULD BE GENERATED. FURTHER RESEARCH WAS SUGGESTED TO DEVELOP TESTS WHICH MEASURE CONCEPTUAL AND ATTITUDINAL CHANGES IN STUDENT DEVELOPMENT. (PM)
