A Field Test of the Effectiveness of One of the Utah State University Protocol Training Materials, In An Inservice Workshop Setting.
Rector, Douglas; And Others
The teaching protocol Encouragement, which emphasizes simple verbal praise, specific praise, and the use of student ideas for motivational reinforcement, was selected for testing. The protocol was tested in a 2-week graduate workshop to determine the extent to which a group of experienced teachers could, upon completion of the protocol training module, demonstrate the skills and behaviors emphasized in a peer-microteaching lesson. The protocol was given during a 1-day period in the workshop. On the day prior, a pretest teaching session was taped, recording the subjects teaching a short lesson. Pre- and posttest behaviors were categorized according to conventions developed at the Far West Laboratory. Results indicate that this group of teachers was able to demonstrate the acquired use of the three encouragement skills stressed in the protocol to a significant degree in a microteaching peer-teaching demonstration lesson. (Two tables of data are given.) (Author/JB)
