Towards an Understanding of Teacher Intentions and Decision-Making.
Haigh, Neil J.
A New Zealand study examines the interaction between 18 teachers and their respective classroom environments and actions in an attempt to isolate those factors contributing to each teacher's philosophy concerning the role and responsibility of pedagogy. Nine classroom teachers and nine student teachers are examined for degree of congruence between self-established educational objectives and actual classroom results. The rationale behind each individual's lesson planning strategy is investigated. This inquiry into the decision-making procedures of teachers attempts to construct a relationship between abstract conceptualization of teaching principles and concrete outcome in terms of learner performance.
