Mangano, Nancy G.; Rupley, William H.
Designed to be used primarily for research purposes, this Group Reading Interaction Pattern Observation Instrument (GRIP) training manual specifies process behaviors used by the teacher during classroom instruction regardless of the subject matter. The instrument is comprised of three sections: (1) the Identifying Information Sheet, to provide investigators with baseline data related to school, grade level, teacher, class size, classroom organization, number of adults present, date, and observer; (2) the Activity/Material Grid to provide a description of teacher and student activities, materials used for instruction, and the degree of student engagement in meaningful classroom activities; and (3) the Interaction Chart to record the interactional patterns of the teacher and students during instruction, including the amount of time involved in direct instruction, transitions between instructional periods, and disciplinary action. Major categories found in the interaction charts are context, instructional behaviors, reading behaviors, questioning, answering, feedback, command, and social comments. An abridged version of the training manual is also included. (HOD)
