Preparation of Pre-Service Science Teachers in the Use of Alternate Laboratory Teacher Behaviors.
Rezba, Richard James
An attempt was made to develop an appropriate teaching model to aid perspective science teachers acquire teaching skills and behavioral patterns appropriate for inquiry-oriented laboratory activities and experiments. Data were collected from two groups of secondary science methods students on their verbal behavior while in the role of laboratory instructor during microteaching sessions. Verbal behavior of experimental group 1 was recorded before and after instructional treatment. For group 2 verbal behavior was recorded on two occasions following treatment. Treatment consisted of a printed model of behaviors and a perceptual model employing these laboratory teacher behaviors. Major conclusions drawn include: (1) the instructional treatment caused a significant increase in use of indirect verbal behaviors on 10 of 14 indirect criterion variables for group 1 and significantly decreased the use of lecture; (2) none were found for group 2, indicating a high degree of stability of participants' verbal patterns following treatment. There were significant differences attributable to high- and low-flexibility, as measured by the Philosophic-Mindedness Scale, on one criterion variable for group 1 and on three for group 2.
