Models for Research on Teaching. Occasional Paper No. 9.
Gage, N. L.
This report begins by giving reasons for conducting research on teaching and examining the different kinds of variables that are studied in research on teaching. The types of relationships between these variables that can be studied are then discussed. Because these types of relationships constitute models for research on teaching, the paper then describes various substantive models and sketches the alternatives of inter-strategy and intra-strategy comparisons. Examples from the reports of the National Institute of Education Conference on Studies in Teaching are presented to give an idea of some of the most recent thinking about research on teaching. Finally, examples of findings from research on teaching are presented--two of which conform closely to what would normally be expected, and two of which run counter to expectations--in order to demonstrate the need for empirical research on teaching.
