Effects of Video and Audio Models on the Acquisition of a Teaching Skill and Concomitant Student Learning.
Santiesteban, A. Joseph
Psychological modeling, the phenomenon referring to the tendency of individuals to imitate higher status persons, peer group members, and other relevant models, has been used as a device for modification of existing behavior and acquisition of previously unlearned behavior. In this study, 48 preservice teachers were randomly assigned to two modeling treatments and a control group. Subjects in the modeling treatments observed either a video model or an audio model. Each subject prepared and microtaught a lesson to three elementary students. The microteaching session was audiorecorded and the audiorecordings were later rated for types and frequencies of teacher questions and student responses. Both modeling treatments were superior to the control in producing the appropriate responses. Students exposed to teachers trained with the models performed significantly better than the control group on the audio interaction measures. (The report includes tables illustrating treatment procedures, variance in dependent variables, and deviations of audio and written measures; and a reference list.) (JS)
