A Study of the Effects of Planned Classroom Teacher Verbal Behavior and Resulting Classroom Pupil Verbal Behavior on the Achievement of Classroom Pupils.
Scott, Alvin Thomas
The purpose of this investigation was to determine the effects of planned classroom teacher verbal behavior and resulting classroom pupil verbal behavior on the achievement of classroom pupils in 40 selected biology classes. The verbal behavior of 20 teachers and 867 pupils was observed by the use of audio tapes and categorized with the Verbal Reaction Behavior Log (VRBL). Ten teachers and 449 pupils comprised the experimental group. The experimental teachers received instruction from the investigator in the use of the VRBL, and the experimental group was taught specific subject matter with this approach. The control group was taught the same subject matter without utilization of the VRBL approach. Both groups were administered the same final examination. The results of utilizing a t-test to determine significant differences in final examination scores revealed a significant difference in favor of the experimental group. (Author/CP)
