CLASSROOM SIMULATION--FURTHER STUDIES ON DIMENSIONS OF REALISM.
KERSH, BERT Y.
AN INSTRUCTIONAL MODEL CALLED FOR A SIMULATED CLASSROOM SETTING IN WHICH A STUDENT TEACHER COULD PRACTICE NEW TEACHING BEHAVIORS UNDER SUPERVISION AND EXPERIENCE THE CONSEQUENCES OF HIS OWN BEHAVIOR. THE MODEL ALSO SPECIFIED THAT THE SUPERVISOR OF THE STUDENT TEACHER'S BEHAVIOR HAVE THE CAPABILITY FOR CONTROLLING THE CLASSROOM EVENTS WHICH FOLLOW IMMEDIATELY UPON THE STUDENT TEACHER'S ACTIONS. IF THE SUPERVISING TEACHER (E) WERE TO JUDGE THE INSTRUCTIONAL BEHAVIOR OF THE STUDENT TEACHER (T) AS BEING EFFECTIVE, E COULD REINFORCE T'S BEHAVIOR BY CAUSING THE STUDENTS IN THE SIMULATED CLASSROOM TO REACT FAVORABLY TO T. IF ON THE OTHER HAND, T'S BEHAVIOR WERE TO BE JUDGED INEFFECTIVE, E COULD CAUSE CAUSE THE STUDENTS TO REACT NEGATIVELY TO T. IN ACCORDANCE WITH THE ABOVE SPECIFICATIONS, AN EXPERIMENTAL LABORATORY WAS BUILT AND TECHNIQUES DEVELOPED FOR SIMULATING A VARIETY OF CLASSROOM SITUATIONS. THE SITUATIONS WERE SIMULATED THROUGH MOTION PICTURES AND PRINTED MATERIALS. EXPERIMENTS WERE CONDUCTED CONCERNING IMAGE SIZE, FEEDBACK MODE, AND RESPONSE MODE. SEVERAL FOLLOWUP STUDIES AND ONGOING RESEARCH EFFORTS WERE ALSO DISCUSSED. (JC)
