Appendix U. Self Concept and Teaching: An Exploration.
A study was conducted to design a system of testing and interviewing which would bring into some relationship the personal characteristics of teacher education students and the external or setting demands made on public school teachers. The major purpose was to provide an opportunity for each student to examine his behavior in a safe and supportive environment to assist him in establishing a set of beliefs and commitments congruent with his makeup and relevant to the teaching profession. Of the 40 junior and senior students who volunteered for the study, 20 served as a control group. The 20 participants each met with the experimenter for five or six 1-hour weekly interviews to discuss the interaction between the student's personality profile (compiled from a test battery) and his philosophical commitment, and to analyze a video tape record of his student teaching performance. Three independent judges viewed 16 video tapes, eight representative of each group, and rated each student on use of expression, reactions with pupils, and style of presentation. Although the interrater reliability was extremely high and analysis of variance of scores yielded a significant difference in experimental and control group ratings, the unsophisticated nature of the research leaves many unresolved questions.
