Rationale for a Study of the Relevance of Academic Learning Time and Active Teaching Behaviors to Secondary Science Teacher Education. Part of a Paper Set: Applying Teacher Effectiveness Findings to Preservice and Inservice Science Teacher Education.
Ponzio, Richard; Russell, Thomas L.
This report is part of a paper set which focuses on a project designated as "Applying Research to Teacher Education (ARTE)." It reviews application possibilities of teacher effectiveness research in elementary classrooms to science teaching at the secondary level. Mills College (Oakland, California) was one of the sites involved in the project. A situational analysis of its teacher preparation program provided the bases for the development, implementation, and evaluation of techniques for applying research findings in both preservice and inservice teacher education programs. Four cooperating teachers and six student teachers of elementary school mathematics participated in the study. The project suggested that skill development in assessing student learning was needed and that training in measurement of academic learning time and active teaching behaviors with student and cooperating teachers would help. Highlights from the interviews of the participating student and cooperating teachers are presented. All participants reported changes in their teaching as a result of the project ideas and the associated feedback that they received about their teaching. The project was also noted to offer collaboration opportunities between teachers and research project personnel. (ML)
