A Study of the Effects of a Teacher Aide Experience on the Preparation of Secondary School Science Student Teachers.
Currie, James Francis
Reported is an investigation to determine and compare the effectiveness of two techniques of teaching a science methods course in secondary education to prospective student teachers. Two methods were used: (1) an especially prepared methods course without teacher aide experience; and (2) an especially prepared methods course with teacher aide experience. Participants in the study were screened on the basis of grade point average and scores received on the Otis Quick Scoring Mental Ability Test and randomly assigned to two groups. Treatments included: Group I, Control Group, received instruction and live demonstrations; Group II received the same and participated in a teacher aide experience in a public school. Thirty-eight students were involved and data obtained by written pretest and the evaluation of the students' performance were used to compare the groups. Students in the experimental groups were superior in overall performance of selected teaching procedures but not necessarily in any specific teaching procedure. The former used more of the selected teaching procedures than did the students in the control group. (Author/EB)
