MATHEMATICS TEACHING BEHAVIOR CHANGES MADE BY INTERMEDIATE GRADE TEACHERS DURING A 15-WEEK PERIOD OF INSTRUCTION BY EDUCATIONAL TELEVISION. FINAL REPORT.
CORLE, CLYDE G.
PURPOSE OF THIS STUDY WAS TO QUANTIFY BEHAVIOR CHANGES OF FOURTH, FIFTH, AND SIXTH GRADE MATH TEACHERS WHILE THEY WERE TAKING A 15-WEEK IN-SERVICE EDUCATIONAL TV COURSE, TAUGHT BY THE AUTHOR. 16 PAIRS OF TEACHERS WERE SELECTED FROM 6 DISTRICTS TO PARTICIPATE. 1 MEMBER OF EACH PAIR WAS CHOSEN BY LOT TO TAKE THE COURSE, AND THE OTHER AGREED NOT TO VIEW IT. 7 TRAINED OBSERVERS VISITED, ON A ROTATING BASIS, EACH OF THE 32 TEACHERS 30 TIMES, 7 BEFORE, AND 23 DURING THE COURSE. THEIR BEHAVIOR WAS RECORDED ON THE 8 SCALES OF THE OBSERVATION SCHEDULE AND RECORD (ELEMENTARY MATHEMATICS) AND ANALYZED BY ANALYSIS OF COVARIANCE. 2 OF THE SCALES SHOWED DIFFERENCES BETWEEN TEACHING STRATEGIES OF THE EXPERIMENTAL AND CONTROL TEACHERS. GAIN SCORES ON 2 ACHIEVEMENT TESTS SHOWED THE EXPERIMENTAL TEACHERS TO BE SIGNIFICANTLY HIGHER THAN THE CONTROL GROUP. THE AUTHOR CONCLUDED THAT THE 15-WEEK PERIOD WAS PROBABLY TOO SHORT TO DOCUMENT BEHAVIOR CHANGES, AND THAT THE 20-MINUTE OBSERVATION PERIOD MIGHT NOT HAVE PROVIDED ENOUGH TEACHER-PUPIL INTERACTION TO JUSTIFY USE OF THE OBSERVATION INSTRUMENT.
