The Effects of the Instructional Behavior and Skills Development Inservice Program upon Teacher Behavior. Final Report.
Missouri Univ., Columbia. Center for Educational Improvement.
This report studies the effects of the Instructional Behavior and Skills Development (IBS) in-service program on teacher behavior. The participants of both the control and experimental groups were full-time elementary teachers of the Springfield, Missouri Public Schools. Participants in the experimental group attended the IBS in-service program of 32 lessons. The lessons consisted of workshop time, classroom application time, and independent study time. Data were obtained from pretests, posttests, audiotaped observations of classroom behavior, and related research. Significant implications of data analysis indicate the IBS program for teachers a) can be a viable tool in changing selected participant behavior, b) may come to realization in the behavior and achievement of the students, and might modify the indices of verbal behavior on other teachers. Further conclusions and recommendations for research are suggested. A 44-item bibliography and appendixes are included. (MJM)
