A Description and Analysis of the Role of the Teacher's Response While Teaching a Short Story.
Heil, Carolyn
This investigation was undertaken to determine what relationships exist between the teacher's personal response to a literary selection, behavior when teaching the story, and response to student essays on the story. The investigative procedure used was that of a modified case study involving eight teachers. Findings indicated that teachers appeared to be devoting their attention most often to grasping story elements; commenting on such concerns as errors in style and mechanics rather than substantive matters; disregarding the importance of engagement-involvement and evaluation; and using the discussion technique of teaching literature in preference to dramatic, written, or visual techniques. Given the findings of the study, there appear to be strong relationships among the teacher's personal response to the story, behavior when teaching the story, and response to student essays on the story when that response concerns substantive issues in the essay.
