A Strategy for Planned Change in the Classroom by Data Feedback and Problem-Solving Intervention.
Landry, Norman; Shively, Sheila
The development and implementation of a written instructional strategy for planned change leading to the integration of the personal growth dimension and the intellectual growth dimension in the classroom is described in this paper. The strategy, based on intervention by data survey feedback and problem solving, was utilized with five freshman classes at Northern Essex Community College (Massachusetts). The survey administration format was varied with each class, but the intent of each was to elicit responses from students regarding their perceptions of the classroom situation, particularly as they related to individual rationale for class attendance, class purpose, interaction with peers, and class environment. Subsequently, survey data were tabulated and results communicated to students. The data feedback was used as an intervention vehicle to engage students in discussion about specific aspects of classroom environment and to discuss and demonstrate problem-solving techniques for effecting change in the classroom. This instructional unit was designed to enhance development of student personal growth opportunities in the college setting; however, it was found that such opportunities are not often expected by students. Instructional materials for the strategy and the survey instrument are appended. (Author/JDS)
