Interaction Analysis; A Minicourse from the Far West Laboratory.
Flanders, Ned A.; And Others
This package of minicourse materials on interaction analysis consists of a handbook, workbook, coordinator's manual, and audio tapes on which classroom episodes have been recorded. The minicourse lasts six weeks, during which time participants are given a brief orientation and spend the first three weeks on five lessons that involve reading sections of the handbook, listening to playbacks, and working on exercises. During the last three weeks, participants microteach and evaluate microteaching sessions. Course objectives include (a) learning Flanders Interaction Analysis categories for coding classroom interaction; (b) learning to use certain categories of behavior in praising, criticizing, and directing; (c) learning to use certain categories of behavior in accepting and using student ideas and feelings; (d) learning to analyze and use two contrasting teaching styles--teacher initiation with student response and student initiation with teacher response; and (e) applying skills acquired by planning, carrying out, and analyzing a microteaching session.
