Dimensions of Classroom Instruction: A Programmatic Approach to the Description of the Classroom Environment. Planning Report No. 5076.
Clements, R. O.
An ongoing research project, Dimensions of Classroom Instruction (DCI) is described. The primary data source is a study of reading in nine second-grade classrooms using such observation techniques as categorical observation, ethnographic observation, and videotaping. Three major objectives for the project are stated: 1) developing methods of refining information from sources such as ethnography, videotaped records, and interviews; 2) comparing information from the perspectives used in the reading group study and other sources available to the project; and 3) examining the relationships between the content of reading instruction, method of instruction, and individual students' abilities and perceptions.
