A Comparative Analysis of Student-Teacher Interaction During Episodes of Classroom Reading Instruction.
Frizzi, Richard John
The major purposes of this study were to analyze classroom behavior as a product of student-teacher interaction, and to determine teaching patterns identified with student mastery of stated instructional objectives in reading. A sample of twenty-two first grade teacher-student groups were video taped during instruction in phoneme-grapheme correspondence of the letter "p." The verbal behavior was analyzed by using Flanders' Interaction Analysis System. The analyzed data, along with results of a testing program, were used to (1) test 14 null hypotheses, (2) provide descriptions of classroom behavior, and (3) describe the behavior of teachers identified as most effective and least effective. The major implications drawn from the study suggested the prudent use of video tape and classroom behavior analysis systems as aids in assisting teachers to emulate research-determined models of effective teaching behavior for specified instructional objectives, and the need for teachers to become more aware of skills inherent in the performance of their roles as teachers of reading.
