Information Desired by Teachers in Instructional Consultation.
McKellar, Nancy A.; Hartshorne, Timothy S.
A three-phase study was conducted to examine the types of instructional information requested by teachers and the ways in which school psychologists currently attempt to obtain such information and provide instructional consultation. In response to a questionnaire, first and fourth grade teachers reported concerns that they had about students, the information and suggestions that they want for dealing with such concerns, and the resource person who could best provide such information. Requests for answers to noninstructional questions were much more frequent than requests for instructional information. The most common instructional questions concerned appropriate methods and the ability level of the student. The school psychologist was the individual most often chosen to provide information to the teacher when the concern was academic or instructional in nature. (Author/CB)
