Teaching Performance of Undergraduate Physical Education Majors across Teacher Education Program Practica.
Hawkins, Andrew H.; And Others
This study sought to establish a descriptive base for the teaching performances of physical education trainees as they progress through a teacher education program. A behavioral teacher evaluation system was developed which includes 11 teacher response classes and 8 student response classes. The project training course included four courses which involved some form of field-based practica (peer teaching, micro teaching, student teaching, etc.). Approximately 12 observations were conducted on each trainee, usually over the course of four semesters. Certain student and teacher response classes were selected for analysis based on presumed relationships to teaching effectiveness. These response classes were graphed for each trainee over the course of their teacher education program, and patterns of responses correlating with course, practica type, accountability system, class size and activity were noted. Individual subject graphs revealing certain prototypic response patterns displayed possible relationships among accountability system, class size, activity, and several key dependent measures including motor engaged time, feedback rate, sequence of instructional behaviors, and specific observation.
