AN ANALYSIS OF CERTAIN ASPECTS OF THE VERBAL BEHAVIOR OF STUDENT TEACHERS OF EIGHTH GRADE STUDENTS PARTICIPATING IN A BSCS LABORATORY BLOCK.
LASHIER, WILLIAM STANLEY
THIS STUDY WAS CONDUCTED TO DETERMINE THE RELATIONSHIP BETWEEN THE VERBAL BEHAVIOR OF STUDENT TEACHERS AND THE ACHIEVEMENT AND SELECTED ATTITUDES OF EIGHTH GRADE STUDENTS. TEN STUDENT TEACHERS PARTICIPATED IN A WORKSHOP DESIGNED TO PREPARE THE STUDENT TEACHERS TO TEACH SCIENTIFIC INQUIRY. THE STUDENT TEACHERS WERE RESPONSIBLE FOR TEACHING A BIOLOGICAL SCIENCE CURRICULUM STUDY BLOCK, ANIMAL BEHAVIOR, FOR A PERIOD OF SIX WEEKS TO 239 EIGHTH GRADE STUDENTS IN SIX JUNIOR HIGH SCHOOLS. THE STUDENT TEACHERS WERE OBSERVED ONCE EACH WEEK FOR SIX WEEKS BY ONE OF THREE OBSERVERS. VERBAL STATEMENTS OF THE STUDENTS AND THE STUDENT TEACHER WERE CATEGORIZED USING THE FLANDERS INTERACTION ANALYSIS SYSTEM. AN I/D RATIO WAS ESTABLISHED FOR EACH STUDENT TEACHER, BY DIVIDING THE TALLIES INDICATING INDIRECT TEACHER INFLUENCE BY THE TALLIES INDICATING DIRECT TEACHER INFLUENCE. STUDENTS WERE PRETESTED AND POST-TESTED FOR ACHIEVEMENT WITH AN INSTRUMENT DESIGNED BY THE INVESTIGATOR. ATTITUDES OF THE STUDENTS TOWARD THEIR STUDENT TEACHERS AND TOWARD THEIR SCHOOL WORK WERE DETERMINED FROM THE MICHIGAN STUDENT QUESTIONNAIRE. THE ANALYSES INDICATED BOTH ACHIEVEMENT AND STUDENT ATTITUDES WERE SIGNIFICANTLY RELATED TO INDIRECT TEACHER INFLUENCE.
