A Study of Student-Teacher Thinking.
Galluzzo, Gary R.
A study used an information-processing model to examine the thoughts of student teachers during the act of teaching. A review of related research on teacher information-processing included studies by Marland (1977), McNair and Joyce (1978), and Morine and Vallance (1975). The study used the method and categories of concerns of McNair and Joyce who, in their study of elementary school teachers, identified major concerns of inservice teachers: (1) pupil learning, attitudes, and behavior; (2) lesson content; (3) procedures; (4) instructional materials; and (5) time block restrictions. These teachers' major concerns were pupil learning and learning tasks, followed by pupil attitudes. Ten elementary school level student teachers participated in the study. Lessons taught by the subjects were videotaped, and stimulated recall interviews were conducted during replaying of the tapes. The student teachers' greatest concerns were pupil learning and pupil attitudes, followed by tasks or learning activities. Results are analyzed in terms of implications for teacher education. (JD)
