Verbal Behavior Patterns of Teachers in Integrated Classrooms.
Hillman, Stephen B.; Elliot, Brownlee
As part of the desegregation plan in the City of Detroit, teachers in recently desegregated schools participated in an inservice program to provide for equal instructional opportunity in the involved classrooms. Teacher-student interaction data were collected in each teacher's classroom using the Brophy-Good System. These data were transformed to produce a rate of interaction per 10 minutes per 25 students. The results of this study indicated that: (1) Black students and males received a greater rate of the classroom interactions than did white students or females; (2) white teachers had a higher rate of interaction than Black teachers; (3) female teachers had a higher rate of instructional activity than male teachers; (4) both male and female teachers acted in very similar ways with male and female students; and (5) there exists the possibility of a "cross race" effect such that Black students of white teachers and white students of Black teachers receive more of the classroom interactions.
