A Study of the Selected Reactions of Language Arts Teachers Toward Suggestions for Individualizing Instruction.
Doemelt, Martha Joan
The purposes of this study were to determine whether recommendations of university professors for individualized instructional strategies are more often judged acceptable by elementary teachers than are those of public school administrators, whether there is a relationship between the extent to which those recommendations are judged to be acceptable by elementary teachers and the amount of extra time it would require to implement the suggestion, and whether recommendations of university professors are more often judged by elementary teachers to require more time to implement than are those of public school administrators. Data from interviews with ten language arts professors and ten elementary principals were collected and put into a questionnaire which consisted of suggestions for the improvement of instructional strategies for individualizing listening in the intermediate grades. The questionnaires were then given to 30 intermediate-grade teachers to determine if the teacher selected the suggestions of college professors or of principals as being of more value to them. Teachers were also asked to rank the strategies according to time required for implementation. No significant differences were found in teachers' preferences or in time required for the implementation of the suggestions of professors and administrators. (Author/LL)
