Classroom Teaching Skills. The Research Findings of the Teacher Education Project.
Wragg, E. C., Ed.
This book describes some of the research undertaken during the Teacher Education Project, a four and one-half year research and development project undertaken by the Universities of Nottingham, Leicester, and Exeter (Great Britain) and funded by the Department of Education and Science. This project involved observation of over 1,000 lessons and interviews with more than 200 experienced and novice teachers and attempted to answer questions about precisely what classroom skills trainee teachers need and about how a trainee's performance can be analyzed so that areas for improvement can be identified. The chapters in this book describe some of the empirical work undertaken in this large project. Chapters include: (1) "Teaching Skills" (E. C. Wragg); (2) "Class Management During Teaching Practice" (E. C. Wragg and P. A. Dooley); (3) "Teachers' First Encounters with their Classes" (E. C. Wragg and E. K. Wood); (4) "Pupil Appraisals of Teaching" (E. C. Wragg and E. K. Wood); (5) "Asking Questions" (G. A. Brown and R. Edmondson); (6) "Explaining and Explanations" (G. A. Brown and S. Armstrong); (7) "Classroom Organisation and Learning" (T. Kerry and M. K. Sands); (8) "Analysing the Cognitive Demand Made by Classroom Tasks in Mixed-ability Classes" (T. Kerry); (9) "The Nature of the New Teacher's Job" (M. B. Youngman); and (10) "Training Skilful Teachers: Some Implications for Practice" (E. C. Wragg). (JMK)
