THIS PAPER DESCRIBES THE DESIGN AND INSTRUMENTATION OF A STUDY TO DETERMINE (A) THE INFLUENCE OF DIFFERENT INSTRUCTIONAL APPROACHES IN TEACHER EDUCATION UPON THE ATTITUDES, PERCEPTIONS AND BEHAVIOR OF STUDENT TEACHERS, AND (B) THE INFLUENCE OF THESE TEACHER CHARACTERISTICS UPON "MENTAL HEALTH" IN THE CLASSROOM. THREE VARIABLES WERE IDENTIFIED--(1) THE INDEPENDENT VARIABLE SUBSUMES 3 INSTRUCTIONAL APPROACHES TO THE SUBJECT MATTER OF 2 REQUIRED ELEMENTARY EDUCATION COURSES ("THE CHILD--HIS NATURE AND NEEDS," AND "THE NATURE AND DIRECTION OF LEARNING")--(A) CONCEPT-ORIENTED (DEVELOPMENT AND UNDERSTANDING OF PRINCIPLES), (B) CASE-STUDY ORIENTED (LEARNING AND DEVELOPMENT OF THE CHILD AS A UNIQUE INDIVIDUAL), AND (C) LEARNER-ORIENTED (FREEDOM OF EXPRESSION AND SELF-SELECTED LEARNING, AIMED AT BETTER SELF-UNDERSTANDING BY THE STUDENTS). (2) THE INTERVENING VARIABLE CONSISTS OF TEACHER ATTITUDES (TOWARD THE TWO COLLEGE COURSES AND TOWARD THEIR ELEMENTARY SCHOOL PUPILS), VALUES, AND SELF-PERCEPTIONS, STUDIED THROUGH INTERVIEWS AND QUESTIONNAIRES, AND ALSO THE COMMUNICATION BEHAVIOR OF THE TEACHER IN THE CLASSROOM (DURING PRACTICE AND FULL-TIME TEACHING), ANALYZED IN 14 CATEGORIES SIMILAR TO FLANDERS INTERACTION ANALYSIS SYSTEM.
