A Survey of Methods and Materials.
Gillis, Candida; And Others
Designed to assess and describe the nature and frequency of teaching methods, activities, and materials used in secondary school English courses, this survey consists of 14 questions related to teaching objectives, activities, and materials, each followed by a list of possible responses. Teachers are asked to select a course, and to circle for each of the 256 items the frequency with which he or she uses a particular activity. material, or objective in that course. Questions cover the concepts taught to improve students' abilities in English; activities used to motivate students to read literature and to write; techniques for teaching writing, literature, or reading; the kinds of writing students are assigned and the nature of reading materials used in class; the reasons for selecting reading materials; the range of oral activities; the nature of any nonwritten composing; methods of evaluating student progress; and teachers' purposes for having students read, write, and speak in the classroom. (This document is one of those reviewed in The Research Instruments Project (TRIP) monograph "Measures for Research and Evaluation in the English Language Arts, Volume 2," published by the Committee on Research of the National Council of Teachers of English in cooperation with the ERIC Clearinghouse on Reading and Communication Skills. The TRIP review, included here as an introduction to the instrument, describes the instrument's category (teacher knowledge and attitudes), title, author, date, age range (adult), purpose, and physical characteristics.)
