Teaching Strategies Exhibited by First-Year Teachers.
Murphy, Patricia D.
This study determined if the effects of specific training in teaching strategies conducted as a part of the preservice program persisted through the first year of teaching. The subjects were first-year home economics teachers who had been a part of a previous study involving the training. They tape-recorded ten lessons. The variety of teaching strategies exhibited was compared with the variety exhibited as a student teacher. The first-year teachers who had been trained in strategies exhibited significantly more strategies than those not trained. There were no significant differences resulting from the two training methods used. The effects of training in teaching strategies which were evident during the student-teaching period continued to exist among the first-year teachers. The first-year teachers trained in strategies recorded strategies that involved abstract ways of dealing with content and involve pupils more, e.g., reflective, pupil participation, and teacher-pupil planning.
