A Detailed Study of the Learning Behaviors of In-Service Teachers Learning To Use Two New Models of Teaching.
The major objective of this study was to observe the learning behaviors of teachers selected by their school districts to attend a training institute to learn some new ways of teaching. The teachers expected to use these new ways of teaching themselves and also to conduct training for other teachers in their own districts. This presentation describes the general and metacognitive behaviors of 12 teachers over an 8-month period as they learned to teach in new ways, using concept attainment and synectic teaching models. The cognitive behaviors teachers reveal while learning to use these models of teaching are also described in an exploration of the possible differences in learning strategies displayed by teachers who learn to use the new models successfully and those who do not do so.
