Verbal and Cognitive Behavior Patterns in the Classrooms of Selected Social Studies Teachers.
Treaner, Hugh J.; Murray, C. Kenneth
This study was intended to obtain baseline data in the areas of verbal and cognitive behavior patterns of selected secondary social studies teachers. Hypotheses for study were that there will be no significant difference between: 1) observed verbal teaching behaviors of the highest and lowest ranked teachers; 2) the observed cognitive behavior of the highest and lowest ranked teachers; and, 3) the observed cognitive behavior of the students of the highest and lowest ranked teachers. Instruments used to measure the verbal and cognitive behavior were Teaching Situation Reaction Test (TSRT), the Observational System for Analysis of Classroom Instruction (OSACI), and the Florida Taxonomy of Cognitive Behavior (FTCB). Thirty secondary social studies teachers were selected for the sample--those ranking in the upper and lower quartiles of the TSRT. The variables under investigation were the verbal teaching behaviors as measured by the OASCI and the cognitive classroom behavior of the teachers and their students as measured by the FTCB. Findings indicate that the cognitive behavior patterns of teachers and students can be identified and the cognitive behavior differs mostly at the higher levels of cognition. (More specific findings are detailed in the document.) (Author/JLB)
