Looking in Classrooms: What Is Important?
Westbury, Ian
Classroom interaction research of the traditional kind is probably not worth the effort involved because it does not have its tasks or questions correctly formulated. There is no central widely available framework or paradigm that permits the ordering of the questions being asked by the researcher or locates the core phenomena that we should be dealing with. The core phenomenon is the classroom as an environment. In the absence of an understanding of this environmental context, research into teacher effects, teacher skill development, and the like will be comparatively fruitless. Research into the classroom must focus on the classroom as a setting or environment and on the management of learning in that setting. The management of learning should center on focusing the energies of students on the learning task. (Author/IRT)
