Guided Self-Analysis Professional Development Systems. Education Series: Overview.
Parsons, Theodore W.
The Guided Self-Analysis System for Professional Development (GSA) has been designed to assist practicing classroom teachers in their efforts toward self-improvement. The system consists of several programs of carefully sequenced interaction codes with which the teacher analyzes a videotape made in his own classroom and comes to a more objective understanding of his own teaching behaviors. Each program directs the teacher to an important educational objective--development of skills in critical-analytical thinking, development of language skills, maintenance of pupils' motivation for learning, etc. Each schedule is a carefully written guide enabling the teacher to do his own analysis and interpretation of a recorded sequence of teaching behaviors. The GSA codes may be designed to fit any teaching situation and provide focused feedback. Coding schedules can be structured to emphasize any particular curricular concern, and since curriculum content and instructional procedure are closely related, properly designed schedules have impact on both areas. [Further information about the GSA system may be obtained by writing to the author.] (MBM)
