A Study of Changes in Intentions, Perceptions, and Classroom Verbal Behavior of Science Interns and Apprentices.
Molchen, Kenneth Joseph
This study was concerned with formulating a conceptual scheme related to variables in practice teaching, with devising instruments to define and measure these variables, and with testing the conceptual scheme and instrument(s) with practice teachers. Nine variables related were recognized as relevant and reported in the study. A Verbal Behavior Q Sort was constructed to define and measure "Intentions, Role Perceptions, Self Perceptions, and Ideals." Twenty-six Science Interns and Apprentices in the Harvard MAT program were chosen for the study. Two hypotheses concerning the conceptual scheme were formulated: (1) changes in intentions, role perceptions, and self perceptions of student teachers in science are accompanied by changes in "classroom verbal behavior," and (2) there are consistent and significant differences in "intentions, role perceptions, self perceptions, and classroom verbal bahavior" between science interns and apprentices which correspond to differences in their program of practice teaching. The findings show that both hypotheses were acceptable on the basis of empirical data. (BC)
