The Effect of Alternative Techniques for Modifying Student Teacher Behavior During the Field Experience.
Bowman, Harold Eugene
Reported is a study to examine the effects of seminar sessions focused on (1) curricular input, (2) affective developent, or (3) a combination of the preceding, on three groups of prospective elementary teachers. Each of the three groups was chosen for one of the seminar groups and a fourth group served as a control with the participants not involved in seminar sessions. The behaviors examined were interaction patterns between the teacher and student and the level of questions being asked by the teacher. The interaction patterns observed permitted a comparison of indirect to direct teaching behaviors as defined by the Flanders' System of Interaction Analysis. A question analysis was developed to examine higher levels of questioning patterns (areas of divergent and evaluative types). Sixty-three randomly chosen prospective teachers assigned to a given district for their field experience were involved. The analysis indicated no significant differences among groups for either interaction patterns or level of questions asked. (Author/EB)
