The Effect on the Verbal Behavior of Selected Volunteer Junior High School Science Teachers of In-Service Education in Verbal Interaction Analysis and Techniques in Indirect Instruction.
Baker, Douglas E.
The purpose of this study was to determine the influence of an inservice teacher education on indirect instruction. The sample was comprised of 25 junior high school teachers from the state of New York. All 25 teachers were taped three times at the beginning of the school year, three times at the middle of the year, and three times at the end. Nine teachers participated in workshops after the first observations and seven additional teachers participated in similar workshops after the mid-year recordings. Analyses indicated teachers who had participated in the workshops displayed a non-random pattern of behavior to increase indirectness. Students of these teachers also showed non-random behavior toward increased student initiated participation. Untrained teachers and their students exhibited random behavior changes in the above areas. (Author/RH)
