THE IDENTIFICATION AND ANALYSIS OF PROBLEMS OF FIRST YEAR TEACHERS.
BROADBENT, FRANK W.; CRUICKSHANK, DONALD R.
TO DETERMINE BEGINNING TEACHERS' PERCEPTIONS OF THEIR TEACHING PROBLEMS, A QUESTIONNAIRE WAS SENT TO 282 JUNE 1964 ELEMENTARY AND SECONDARY GRADUATES OF SUC BROCKPORT. REPLIES FROM 163 SHOWED A SIGNIFICANTLY FREQUENT RECURRENCE OF CERTAIN TEACHING PROBLEMS. THESE PROBLEMS FELL IN SIX MAJOR CATEGORIES AND WERE RANKED FOR FREQUENCY AS FOLLOWS--(1) METHODS, (2) EVALUATION (OF STUDENTS), (3) DISCIPLINE, (4) PARENT RELATIONS, (5) ROUTINES AND MATERIALS, (6) PERSONAL (MOSTLY LACK OF SELF-CONFIDENCE). OTHER SIMILAR STUDIES SHOWED DISCIPLINE AS A SIGNIFICANT FACTOR. HOWEVER IT IS FELT THAT THERE IS A DISTINCT LACK OF AGREEMENT IN TERMINOLOGY AMONG SUCH STUDIES, MAKING COMPARISON DIFFICULT. IT IS FELT THAT AN INSTRUMENT (FOR FOLLOWING-UP RECENT EDUCATION GRADUATES) SHOULD BE STANDARDIZED. RESULTS OF THE CURRENT STUDY ARE BEING USED TO PLAN SPECIFIC PRESERVICE EXPERIENCES TO WHICH STUDENTS WILL BE EXPOSED IN AN EFFORT TO DETERMINE WHETHER SUCH EXPOSURE WILL ALTER THE NUMBER, INTENSITY, OR KIND OF PROBLEMS PERCEIVED BY 1967 GRADUATES. PRESENTLY EACH OF THE SIGNIFICANT PROBLEMS IS BEING BUILT INTO A SPECIAL SIMULATION PROGRAM. PAPER READ AT ANNUAL CONVOCATION ON EDUCATIONAL RESEARCH (6TH, OCT. 19, 1965). (RP)
