Analysis of Data from an Experiment in Teacher Development.
Bamberger, Jeanne; And Others
This report documents events and activities that took place in the course of meetings and seminars investigating the cognitive processes and learning styles of elementary school teachers. The report includes an overview and six separate documents, each presenting one facet of the project. The overview is followed in section two by a proposed methodology for the micro-analysis of spontaneous learning as it occurs during the process of building a musical tune with arrangements of bells. Section three deals with "critical moments"--events which are spontaneously recalled and used as images for understanding new situations. Section four is a longitudinal analysis of the evolution of an "idea" in the course of the work of a group of teachers in elementary arithmetic. Section five focuses on the role of interpersonal relations among teachers and between teachers and staff as these influenced the outcomes of seminar explorations and discussions. The sixth section describes the outcomes of the project as seen in observations of five of the teachers' classrooms, and section seven presents brief sketches of each of the participating teachers in the light of their participation in the project.
