Teacher Non-Verbal Activity.
Grant, Barbara M.
This descriptive research study had as its major objective the development of a category system through which the teacher's physical motions in relation to his verbal actions could be analyzed with a high degree of reliability. The performances of five elementary teachers at the College Demonstration School were recorded on video tape. Narrative typescripts of both verbal and non-verbal "teacher motions" were made for representative, random samplings of lesson segments. Using the analysis system that emerged in this study, two teams of coders analyzed these data. Coefficients of agreement between teams ran consistently high. Hypotheses, concerning non-verbal activity, were projected. (Author)
