Investigations into the Instructional Process: V. Experiences with the Bellack Classification System.
Karma, Kai
Video- and sound-tape recordings of 96 lessons in one Finnish school were analyzed using the Bellack Classification System. The lessons were composed of Finnish, arithmetic, civics, drawing, religion, and music for Grades 3 and 4. During the coding process, it was found that the Bellack system was not very suitable for describing instruction at the elementary level. Consequently, the system was modified. Results are presented for the following categories: pedagogical moves; logical, instructional, rating, and extralogical substantive meanings; and cycles. The results indicated that the teacher's role that emerged was rather similar to Bellack's description. However, differences were found in the results for the pupil's role. (JS)
