A Correlation of Biology Teachers' Pupil Control Ideology and Their Classroom Teaching Practices.
Jones, Paul L.; Blankenship, Jacob W.
The Pupil Control Ideology Form (PCI Form) and the Biology Classroom Activity Checklist (BCAC) were used to determine the relationship between teachers' stated pupil control ideology and the extent to which their students reported the use of inquiry methods in the classroom. Data were collected from a stratified random sample of 168 teachers and 2040 of their students. High scores on the PCI Form (indicating a custodial pupil control ideology) showed significant negative correlations with total scores on the BCAC (indicating the use of inquiry methods) and with four of the seven BCAC sub-scales. The use of inquiry methods in the laboratory appeared to be less related to the teacher's pupil control ideology than the use of inquiry methods in other classroom activities. (EB)
