A Quasi-Experimental Study of the Effects of Two Modes of Instruction on the Attitudes of Preservice Elementary Teachers in the Area of Science Teaching.
Liddle, Edward Maynard
The purpose of this study was to assess and compare the effects of two modes of small-group instruction in an elementary science methods course upon the attitudes held by preservice elementary teachers related to science and the teaching of science. Eighty junior- and senior-level students enrolled in a course at Michigan State University were the subjects of the study. Instruction in ten small group sessions was used as the treatment. Two types of treatment were provided. One treatment was designated as auto-instructional, while the other was designated as lecture-demonstration. The analyses indicated that the lecture-demonstration group showed greater positive changes in attitudes than the auto-instructional treatment group. (RH)
