A Qualitative Study of How One Teacher Selects Instructional Materials.
Elliott, John D.
A case study explored the ways in which a primary grade teacher selected instructional materials. The teacher had nearly 25 years of experience in the field. Data were gathered through 10 weekly interviews of about a half hour each, during which videotapes of the teacher's classroom practices were reviewed. Areas covered under the study included: the text as a set curriculum; reflections on the teacher's choices of instructional materials; the source of the teacher's instructional ideas; the teacher as "scrounger"; instructional materials and parent involvement; and instructional materials as outside experiences. Specific detail is presented on the teacher's views on these areas, and a description is given of the teacher's decision-making processes in selecting instructional materials. (CB)
