Educational Psychology and Teaching: A Perspective.
The use of specific psychological constructs in the classroom provides a criterion for the selection of topics for construction of a course in educational psychology. A model course is outlined. Using a tutorial-supervisory format, student teachers and inservice teachers work together as experimenters testing the validity of psychological theories against their actual teaching experience. The collaboration involves a scrutiny of principles and practices of teaching and learning. The student teachers, with the help of the inservice teachers, plan, execute, and evaluate teaching. The inservice teachers, on the basis of their own studies of psychological principles, guide and counsel the student teachers in a systematic application of theory to practice. The student teacher evaluates effectiveness by the extent of success in getting children to learn, and the tutor evaluates success by the extent to which the student teacher has demonstrated a grasp of theory through its practical application.
