Teacher Perspective on Change to an Open Approach.
Amarel, Marianne; And Others
The teacher's role in open educational settings is the central focus of this study. The perceptions, understandings, and beliefs of 66 teachers (K-4, associated with open education programs for at least 2 years) regarding basic issues of implementing an open approach were examined through in-depth professional interviews. Factors that teachers perceive as hindering or facilitating change in open directions were identified; a study of the relationship between beliefs and attitudes about educational issues to instructional practice was initiated. (Also included in this study is the appendix, Teacher Perception of Support from Advisors.) (Author)
