A Training Program in Improving Observational Skills: A Systematic Observation of Classroom Verbal Interaction.
State Univ. of New York, Buffalo.
This document presents six observation schedules designed to assist the teacher in discovering patterns in observed behaviors. Schedules provide a carefully defined focus through which patterned relationships are seen between behaviors performed by certain actors in various settings and contexts. Completion of these observation schedules should help eliminate some of the frustration a teacher feels while standing before a class, unable to get a discussion going. The schedules indicate that thoughtful, sustained student participation in class discussions is not merely the product of student personalities, but of a subtle, patterned "negotiation" between teacher and students.
