Head Start Evaluation and Research Center, Boston University. Report A-I, Teaching Style: The Development of Teaching Tasks.
Six teachers were given instructions and materials with which to conduct a 20-minute teaching session. The sessions were filmed. The films will be scrutinized to obtain comparisons of teaching styles, tasks (the instructions and materials provided each teacher), and teacher-task interactions. The films have not been completely processed yet and so no data is available. Several scales have been determined which will be used to classify teaching styles: (1) control, (2) approach to child activities, (3) value, or orientation of classroom activities, (4) warmth, (5) humor, (6) flexibility, (7) direction, and (8) differentiation. An appendix describes the four tasks given each teacher; (1) masks, (2) balloons, (3) homes and families, and (4) games. (WD)
