A Piagetian Analysis of the Teaching of Seriation Concepts in Four First Grade Classrooms.
Gordis, Felice Witztum
An analysis system based on Piagetian theory was developed for describing the cognitive interaction in four first-grade classrooms where pupils were receiving instruction in serial ordering. The data were divided into pedagogical moves with four different functions: structuring, soliciting, responding, and reacting. Results showed that pedagogically the teacher dominated the discourse by making almost two-thirds of all moves, 89 percent of the soliciting moves, 95 percent of the structuring moves, and 74 percent of the reacting moves. Pupils made 92 percent of the responding moves. In the two classes contrasting most in cognitive level, pupils tended to respond with the cognitive action solicited by the teacher. The prevalence of teacher soliciting-pupil responding patterns suggested attention to use of the soliciting move. (Author/DT)
