SYSTEMATIC OBSERVATION OF VERBAL INTERACTION AS A METHOD OF COMPARING MATHEMATICS LESSONS.
PROCTOR, VIRGINIA H.; WRIGHT, E. MURIEL J.
VARIOUS PATTERNS OF VERBAL INTERACTION WERE INVESTIGATED BETWEEN PUPILS AND TEACHERS IN CLASSROOMS WHERE FOUR TYPES OF MATHEMATICS LESSONS WERE EMPLOYED. TO DETERMINE IF SIGNIFICANT DIFFERENCES EXISTED IN THE AMOUNT OF VERBAL INTERACTION IN THESE 4 APPROACHES, 12 SENIOR HIGH SCHOOL AND FRESHMAN COLLEGE MATHEMATICS CLASSES WERE USED TO TEST THE AUTHORS' DEVELOPED SCHEME OF SYSTEMATIC OBSERVATION CALLED THE WRIGHT-PROCTOR OBSERVATIONAL INSTRUMENT. DISTINCTIVE PATTERNS IN THE AREAS OF CONTENT, PROCESS, AND ATTITUDE WERE ESTABLISHED FOR THE 4 TYPES OF CLASSES INVESTIGATED. THE RESULTS SUPPORTED THE EFFICACY OF THE INSTRUMENT. THE OPPORTUNITIES FOR OBSERVATION MADE POSSIBLE AN EXTENSIVE REVISION OF THE OBSERVER'S MANUAL WHICH APPEARS AS AN APPENDIX TO THIS REPORT. (GD)
