The Effects of Supervision Employing Interaction Analysis on the Teaching Behavior of Selected Physical Education Teachers.
Lombardo, Bennett J.
A study was made to determine the effects of long-term, daily supervision which employed interaction analysis procedures on the teaching behavior and interactions of four elementary school physical education teachers. Repeated, daily, multiple observations were recorded for each subject's teaching behavior and interaction patterns in the movement class. Based on the results of this study, it was concluded that: (1) The use of interaction analysis data, employed on a daily, long-term basis, seemed to influence teaching behavior and the resulting interaction in the gymnasium; and (2) The use of interaction analysis data as a feedback mechanism provides teachers with specific information related to the teaching-learning process, which can be used to stimulate change, growth, and the improvement of pedagogical practice. Other studies using similar techniques and categories used in the analyses are presented in tabular form. (JD)
