THE DEVELOPMENT OF A TAXONOMY FOR THE CLASSIFICATION OF TEACHER CLASSROOM BEHAVIOR.
OPENSHAW, M. KARL; AND OTHERS
AN ATTEMPT WAS MADE TO DEVELOP A TAXONOMY FROM A SYNTHESIS OF PREVIOUS APPROACHES TO THE DESCRIPTION AND CATEGORIZATION OF TEACHER CLASSROOM BEHAVIOR. INVESTIGATORS FOUND THAT THE VARIETY OF VIEWPOINTS COULD NOT BE SYNTHESIZED INTO ONE SINGLE SYSTEM. HOWEVER, SOME OF THE CATEGORIES, APPROACHES, AND CONCEPTUALIZATIONS FROM PREVIOUS EFFORTS PROVIDED INSIGHTS FROM WHICH A TAXONOMY WAS EVOLVED WHICH CAN BE USED FOR EMPIRICAL DESCRIPTION OF GROSS AND MIDDLE-RANGE LEVELS OF TEACHER BEHAVIOR. THE TAXONOMY AND RELATED PARADIGMS WERE EMPIRICALLY TESTED IN 30 OBSERVATIONS OF CLASSROOM BEHAVIOR RANGING FROM THE FIRST GRADE THROUGH A COLLEGE GRADUATE COURSE. THE TAXONOMY WAS SUBSEQUENTLY MODIFIED. VALIDATION OF THE FINAL TAXONOMY WAS CONDUCTED WITH FILMED SEQUENCES OF SPONTANEOUS CLASSROOM BEHAVIOR WHICH WERE EVALUATED AT TIMED INTERVALS, AS WELL AS WITH OBSERVATIONS OF LIVE CLASSROOM TEACHING.
