An Analysis of the Influence of a Training Intervention for Business-Like Behavior on the Business-Like Behavior and Level of Warmth of Preservice Elementary Teachers.
Gabrys, Robert E.
This study was designed to see if preservice elementary teachers having undergone a training intervention on business-like behavior can significantly increase their observable level of business-like behavior and maintain the level of increase ten weeks after training. The observed level of warmth was also monitored in relationship to the training intervention. The training intervention included classroom instruction, identification, and observation of business-like descriptors in classroom settings, role playing, peer teaching, and microteaching. Significant results were obtained relative to the intervention, and nonsignificant correlations found between business-like behavior and warmth. (Author/JD)
