Interaction Analysis of Value-Clarification Behaviors.
Geisinger, Robert W.
To help children use valuing processes, a teacher uses strategies of value clarification. The Flanders' Interaction Analysis Behaviors can be used as a model to construct an instrument for use with value-clarifying responses by teachers. The instrument entitled, "Interaction Analysis of Value-Clarification Behvaiors" (IAVCB) is constructed on this model. As with the Flanders' instrument, all categories are mutually exclusive, yet they include all value talk in the classroom. Teacher Direct Talk includes the categories of 1) lecturing, 2) rebuking or punishing, and 3) dissonant response. Indirect Talk comprises 1) choosing, 2) prizing, 3) acting, and 4) asking questions. Student Talk is classified as 1) response, 2) value indicator, and 3) inquiry. The eleventh category covers silence or confusion. Data are recorded with the IAVCB in the same manner as with the Flanders' instrument. An interaction matrix is then formed using 11 columns, rather than 10, and analyzed in terms of percentages of Teacher Talk and Student Talk. Indirect/Direct ratios can also be computed. (RT)
