Pupil Inquiry Behavior Analysis and Change Activity. Interim Project Report.
Manion, Raymond C.
This interim report discusses progress toward three major goals of the Pupil Inquiry Behavior Analysis and Change Activity: increased pupil inquiry, changed teacher behavior to facilitate pupil inquiry, and the development of a 32-week course of instruction to provide for these behavioral changes. Data currently available deals with the emotional climate in the classroom, with other data relating to cognitive behaviors is due for later report. Reported are behavioral changes noted to date, expected project products, and problems enocuntered thus far. Data reported was obtained using Flander's Interaction Analysis, whose categories are defined in Table I of the Appendix. Evidence strongly suggests behavioral changes are heading in the desired directions, although slowly. Products to date include the inservice teacher course, and a number of interaction response reports. Computer programs are being developed and tested for information feedback. Problems encountered have been a lack of anticipated video equipment, malfunctional audio tape recorders, lack of an on-board computer, and insufficient personnel and resources to accomplish the original project goals. Tables are appended. (Author/CJ)
