The Complexities of an Urban Classroom; An Analysis Toward a General Theory of Teaching.
Smith, Louis M.; Geoffrey, William
This book is devoted to a systems analysis of the teaching process in a single slum school classroom in which the teacher was a participant-observer researcher. The research approach used in the study is termed the "microethnography of the classroom" and is derived from social and behavioral theory. Chapters are devoted to the methodology of this study, the social structure of classroom processes, and concepts of the teaching process. One section discusses curriculum and lesson activities while another describes the culturally deprived child in the classroom and the school. A final chapter is devoted to some reflections on this procedure of classroom analysis. The decision-making of teachers is viewed as the core of this model of the teaching process. (NH)
