Simulation in Inner City Teaching - A Demonstration and Evaluation.
Gleason, Gerald T.
This study provided an assessment of the effectiveness of simulation in developing attitudes, values and cognitive understanding in a teacher education program. The experimental participants were 24 undergraduates enrolled in a course on learning and development. The course consisted of demonstrations of problems faced by the teacher in the inner city classroom. The control subjects were enrolled in the nonsimulation section of the same course. The following pretests were administered to the experimental group: Educational Psychology Knowledge Test (EPK); Pupil Control Ideology (PCI); Teaching Confidence Scale (TCS); Perceived Problems Inventory (PPI); and Minnesota Teacher Attitudes Inventory (MTAI). The EPK, PCI, TCS and PPI were administered to the control group. At the end of the course, the tests were readministered to both groups; the Reactions to Simulator Training Inventory (RSTI) was given to the experimental group. An analysis of covariance was used on the pre- and posttest data. Results showed no significant differences between the two groups, however, the reactions of the participants to the simulation program were supportive. A 14-item bibliography was included. (BRB)
