Two Coding Systems to Describe Teaching Behavior and Pupil Behavior: A Gestalt Approach to Teaching.
Schwartz, Sydney L.; Mott, Johanna K.
The objective of the project was to develop two coding systems, one on teaching strategies and one on pupil involvement in classroom activities. Videotape sequences served as test data for refining the categories. Codings were analyzed for clustering of teaching behaviors into teacher roles and relationships between teacher behavior and pupil behavior. Coded samples of trainees' early teaching sequences were compared to later sequences to identify change in teaching performance. The two coding systems offer a viable means for describing teaching-learning behavior in a gestalt, thereby laying a foundation for agreement on performance-competence criteria. The appendix includes a sample Teacher Behavior Form and Pupil Behavior Form. (Author/SE)
