A Study of Two Program Models of Teacher Preparation and Their Effects Upon the Perceptions of Prospective Teachers.
Zegler, Robert W.; Bingman, William
A study compared the effects of presenting a general humanistic methods program using two different time schedules. It tested the hypothesis that these different time arrangements would not affect the prospective teacher's perceptions of his a) classroom practices, b) relationship with his students, c) reactions to classroom situations, or d) perceptions of student characteristics; neither would the scheduling affect the degree of his openmindedness nor his personal beliefs. Two groups of student teachers were formed, 20 subjects in each. Group 1 subjects student taught for a 15-week period, reporting one day each week for a 4-hour presentation of the program. Group 2 did not student teach until after a 5-week intensive presentation of the same material. Pre- and posttesting using various performance inventories indicated the 5-week program to be significantly more effective in producing perceptual change than was the 15-week schedule. (Details of the study will be supplied by authors.) (JB)
